About Us

Mom's Day Out of Derby (MDO) was founded in 1981 and ministers to mothers and caregivers of young children within our community. The program provides five hours of supervised play and craft activities for children six weeks of age through pre-Kindergarten, while their caregivers run errands, or simply take a well-deserved break!

Normal Operations:

MDO meets on Tuesdays from 9:30am - 2:30pm, September - May at Woodlawn United Methodist Church in Derby, KS. Preschoolers who also attend Jack & Jill Preschool in Derby during the Tuesday morning or afternoon class can come to MDO for the other half of the day, so they still have full five hours to learn and play. The MDO Director walks preschool children to or from Jack & Jill, at the appropriate class times.
