Mother's Day Out Program
The Mother's Day Out Program is a mission of Holy Comforter Lutheran Church and has served our families for over 40 years. We strive to provide a warm, loving, Christian environment for creative and happy play among children of the same age group. HCLC Mother's Day Out program is licensed and follows the standards set by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
Our curriculum is developed in cooperation with area Kindergarten teachers to ensure that skills required for entry in Humble ISD kindergarten are introduced while in our Preschool program. Our writing program is Get Ready For School (the Preschool version of Handwriting Without Tears Program currently used in Humble ISD). We regularly update our curriculum to reflect any necessary changes.
Activities The Preschool classroom is center-based and provides experiences in language, fine motor skills, writing, math, science, dramatic play, and manipulatives. In addition to our daily activities, we provide the following:
Kids in Action - A local gymnastics company teaches biweekly classes focused on gross motor skills

Chapel - Weekly opportunity for children to experience a time of worship and praise.
