Thank you to Eastminster Church and their Kids Day Out program for sponsoring this guide and for providing educational childcare for our community.
Kids Day Out Programs are the perfect opportunity for mom to run errands, get some work done, or take a class – alone! Several churches in the area offer these programs which give busy moms extra time to get things done while the kids are in a positive learning environment. Below are a few that readers have suggested!
