Showing the love of Christ through nurture and play

Our goal is to maintain a Christ-centered program that supports the development of the child—spiritually, socially, physically, mentally and emotionally—in a loving Christian atmosphere. Children will experience an age-appropriate curriculum with flexible structure while enjoying free play, music, crafts, playground time, story time, snack and lunch time.

The mission of the Hamilton Mill United Methodist Church MMO Ministries is to be an outreach to the community and support moms (fathers and grandparents too!) by providing a weekday program in a Christian atmosphere for children 12 months to 2 years of age.  This gives parents a chance to have a morning out to themselves, while children are cared for in a positive and loving environment.  An experienced staff is carefully selected for their warmth and love of children and God.  Since a baby or toddler often experiences church in a MMO nursery setting first, we believe your child’s experience should be one of nurture, love and play.  The emphasis of MMO is learning through play, and the love Jesus Christ has for all little children.  We look forward to caring for the children of our community.

Tuition is due by the tenth of each month throughout the school year. We have a one-time activity fee of $30 that is due at Open House. This fee covers the cost of a school t-shirt and book bag.

A non-refundable registration fee is the same as one month’s tuition and is due at the time of reservation. This fee assures your child a place in the program and will be used for supplies, equipment, insurance and administrative cost.
