Parent's Day Out Childcare Program

***Spots Still Available!***

The purpose of the St. Barnabas Parent’s Day Out (PDO) program is to provide competent care for preschool age children from 2 years of age (as of September 5th, 2017) through 4 years of age. We believe that parents have a need for regular and reliable care for their children, and that children can benefit from time away from home meeting and playing with other children in a loving and caring environment.

2017/2018 Schedule: PDO will be in session from September 5, 2017 to May 17, 2018 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9am-1pm. PDO will follow the school calendar of Glen Ellyn School District 89.

Enrollment and Fees: To register a child, the parent must fill out a registration packet. A fee of $30 per day will be charged per child. If two children from the same family are enrolled in the program on the same day, the fee will be $55 per day; three children will be $75 per day. A non-refundable fee of $50 per child is required to enroll. The enrollment cost is $75 for two of more children from the same family. Each child may enroll for up to two days per week. Payment is due at the beginning of each month.

Eligibility: PDO is a community service sponsored by St. Barnabas Episcopal Church. Any member of our local community may be eligible to enroll. Children ages 2-4 are eligible for the program. All children age three and up must be toilet-trained to attend our program. We do accept children who are two years old in diapers.
