Moody Day School
Moody Day School was established in the mid 1960s as a Mother’s Day Out program. By 1968 the program expanded to include a preschool. In 1994 an after-school program began for area elementary schools and in 1995 a full day care program also began. Enrollment is open all children from ages 3 months to teens, regardless of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin. Moody Day School celebrates the diversity of its students and their families.
Our mission is to provide a positive, safe, supervised and caring Christian environment to be a home atmosphere full of encouragement and concern. We will strive to treat each child with dignity, respect and love.

We invite you to tour our school and visit classes to determine whether our program will best meet your child’s needs. Students are enrolled in order of registration, subject to age-group limits. Infants must be 3 months of age to enter the program. A preschool child’s class is determined by the child’s age by September 1 each year. A waiting list is kept for each group for the present school year. A new waiting list is established each year.

Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided by the school. Those children staying through the lunch hour will need to bring a lunch from home.
Our classrooms are designed with children in mind. All preschool rooms allow 10 to 20 more square feet per child that required and have restrooms sized for children. Classrooms allow for lots of movement, art and play appropriate to the age group.
Outdoor play on three playgrounds is part of each child’s day. One playground is designed for infants, toddlers and two year olds. The other two offer a variety of play structures for older children.
All children, even the infants, enjoy playing in our gym each day, and especially on bad weather days. Basketball, volleyball and shuffleboard are just a few of the activities for after school children.
