Children's Day Out is a Christian preschool sponsored by First Lutheran Church to serve the Topeka community.


Children's Day Out strives to present a developmentally appropriate program for all 2-5 year olds.  Creative Curriculum, by Teaching Strategies, provides the foundation for teachers to plan and present an active learning based curriculum.  The children have opportunity to learn through exploring, experimenting, and using creative expression of ideas and feelings.  Parents can be confident that students attending CDO will have experienced growth in the cognitive, physical, social/emotional, language and spiritual areas that will help them move successfully to the next level of development.  Parents can expect to receive ongoing information about their child's progress throughout the school year, including two parent/teacher conferences.

Children will be grouped according to age, taking into consideration date of birth and gender, in order to make a good mixture in each class.  Parents are asked to remain flexible so that a good placement can be made for each child in the available classroom space.


The transition class is specifically designed for children who have turned 5 but whose parents are intentionally choosing to give them another year of preschool to grow and develop before they begin kindergarten.  Children enrolled in a transition class will have the opportunity for continued growth in all areas of their development, specific attention will be given to areas that need further practice and attention.  The morning transition class has extended days.  It will meet Monday through Friday, on MWF from 9:00-1:00 with children bringing a sack lunch and TTh from 9:00-11:30.  The afternoon transition class will meet MTWF from 12:30-3:00.  


Enrollment Fee:  There is an initial enrollment fee of $80.00 per student.  This fee helps with the costs of processing, insurance, and consumable supplies and also assures you that a space has been reserved for your child.  Your check for $80.00 will not be deposited until parents and director are satisfied with a position for your child.  Once an agreed upon placement is made, the enrollment fee is non-refundable.


September's Tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is due by May 10.  The remaining months of CDO tuition will be due a month in advance.  October's tuition will be due by September 10, November by October 10, etc.  September tuition checks should be mailed to our office.  After school begins, payments may be mailed or sent to school in your child's backpack.  Cash payments should always be brought directly to the office.


Withdrawal notice must be presented in writing before June 10 in order to receive a refund for September.  After June 10, September's tuition is non-refundable.  This allows us to provide a firm placement for as many children as possible.
