Ford's Chapel MDO Preschool and Kindergarten
Our teachers have a heart for teaching!! :)
Ford's Chapel MDO Preschool and Kindergarten is a ministry of Ford's Chapel United Methodist Church. It is a half day program which provides a learning atmosphere where the children will grow physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually through developmentally appropriate activities in order to develop a positive self-image and prepare them for elementary school. We love children and would love the opportunity to share in your child's life. We accept children ages one through five years old. Our hours are 9:00 to l:00 Monday through Friday. We follow the Madison County school schedule. We are a Safe Sanctuary Church and have a Child Protection Policy in place for all of our Church ministries. In addition, MDO has a Security Policy in place. Our experienced staff is very dedicated with a true love for children and their well-being. The Kindergarten and Pre-K classes have certified teachers. All of our teachers and staff are experienced and have CPR training and staff development training. All staff members have background and reference checks prior to employment.
Please call the MDO office at (256) 864-0888 for an appointment to tour or register your child. Registration forms are available in the MDO office. Non-refundable registration fees of $50 must accompany the registration form. Current immunizations records are also required before the child's first school day. Registration is on a first come - first served basis. Limited spaces are available.
Monthly tuition rates for the 2014-2015 school year are listed below. Tuition is an annual rate divided into 10 monthly payments payable August through May and is not prorated for any month. MDO is a self-supporting program and the only income is from tuition payments.
