Mother's Day Out

Welcome to Mother’s Day Out and Preschool! It is a joy for us to share in the life of your child for a few hours each week. We invest in the social, emotional, and academic development of the children each moment they are in our care. But more importantly, we are sharing the love of Christ with children in all that we say and do each day.


Children may be enrolled as early as 6 months and up to 3 years old for Mother’s Day Out. Preschool classes are for 4 & 5-year-olds. Our program follows a school year calendar, so we are in session from the middle of August until the middle of May. We are open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Full-day rates are $26.00/day and half-day rates (8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.) are $18.00/day. Children may be enrolled on any combination of days & full/half day times – with the exception of Preschool. Preschool students must enroll on both Tuesdays and Thursdays for full days with Wednesdays as optional. This class is for 4 or 5 years olds who will be enrolling in kindergarten the following school year.


In our efforts to maintain a program of excellence, we adhere to teacher/child ratios in each age group that creates an environment conducive to providing the attention each child needs to thrive while in our care. We maintain a waiting list for all classes with preference given to First Baptist Church (Murray) members.


We look forward to serving your family through the ministry of Mother’s Day Out and Preschool!






The following forms may be downloaded to print and fill out at your convenience once your child has been enrolled in our program. Paperwork is only to be filled out and turned in after you have been notified that your child has a spot in one of our classes. 


In addition to the forms on this page, each child enrolled in Mother’s Day Out must have a current immunization certificate from their healthcare provider. 








We use Phase Foundations as our curriculum in all of our Mother's Day Out classrooms because it focuses on the social, emotional, mental, and physical needs of children.

Lauren Dunlap

Mother's Day Out Director

I joined the church as the Mother’s Day Out director in 2017. I have 11 years of experience in the field of mental health counseling as a licensed clinical social worker. I love working with children and have specialized in birth to 5 years of age at my previous employer. I enjoy watching children grow and learn. I have seen the positive influence Mother’s Day Out has had on my own children. I welcome open two-way communication with parents to jointly celebrate parenting joys and tackle challenging struggles.


I am married to Zach and have two daughters, Emilia and Ruby. I also have one dog, Maye. In my spare time, I enjoy baking, reading, exercising, and spending time with my family and friends.
