Where are you located?
Mom’s Day Out is conveniently located just 5 minutes from the Lehi Main Street exit on I-15, on the Lehi/Highland border. For those in the East Lehi/Highland area, we are 1.5 miles north of the Lehi Costco. We are easily accessible from most of Utah County as well as south Salt Lake County. If you need the exact address, please contact me.
What ages do you take?
The age range for Mom’s Day Out kids is 2-6. Please see the next FAQ for 2 and 3 year olds.
Does my child need to be potty trained?
The short answer is yes. I understand, however, that some children take a while to fully potty train. If your child is mostly there, e.g. needs some reminders, occasionally has an accident, he or she will be fine joining our Mom’s Day Out group. I just ask that you send an extra change of clothes to keep at Mom’s Day Out.
If your child is still in diapers or pull-ups, then they will need to wait until they are mostly or all the way potty trained before enrolling. If you need some potty training help, please feel free to email me. I’ve potty trained many children. 🙂
What hours do we bring our kids?
Drop-off begins at 9 am. I ask this year that you please do not bring your children early. My youngest is in Kindergarten this year and I’ll be hurrying back from dropping him off at school. Pick-up is a 2 pm.
What if I want my child to come more than one day per week?
It is possible to send your child two days per week. I have had children do this in the past. You would simply register them for multiple days and pay the two child rate. We will, however, do the same activities each day of the week, so your child will be repeating activities.
Do I have to register for the entire year?
Mom’s Day Out is a month-to-month program. You are welcome to have your child come one month, but not the next. The only downside to taking a month off (aside from less free time for mom) is that I cannot guarantee there will still be space for your child should you decide to enroll again.
Is Mom’s Day Out a substitute for preschool?
No. Mom’s Day Out is a “Preschool Enrichment Program” with extended day option. I have made an effort to schedule Mom’s Day Out so that children can come one of their off-days from preschool. I will not be teaching letters, number, shapes, etc. Instead, we do enrichment activities like art, science, story time, and movement.

How big is each class?
Right now my maximum class sizes are 10 children. If I decide I would like to expand the classes, I can go up to 12 students.
What are the enrollment and material fees?
There are none! Yay! All materials, including 1 snack each session, are included in your monthly cost.
What do I need to send with my child each week?
It is helpful if you send your child with a backpack (a small one is fine) or reusable grocery bag. Your child will also need to bring a lunch if they are enrolled in the extended day option. Please, keep in mind as you pack your child’s lunch that we are a peanut/tree-nut free home. Do not send your child with food that contains nuts or peanuts.
