Mother's Day Out outreach ministry to families here in the Altus community.

First Baptist Church of Altus Mother's Day Out is a weekday program with the primary objectives of providing parents with Christ-centered child-care for their babies - preschool-aged children. Classes are held on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00 am - 2:30 pm.


Our goal in Mother’s Day Out is to offer opportunities for each child to grow and learn by providing a balance of age-appropriate preschool activities, biblical concepts and play that will enhance social skills, creativity, and learning.

2017-2018 Theme

"Every living thing belongs to God". We are using woodland animals decorations this year to take our little ones through many exciting adventures as they discover new things from God's word and about His creation.

Theme Verse

Job 12:10  In His hands is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.


Our classrooms are designed to meet the needs of the growing, exploring preschooler. Childcare workers develop learning activities that promote physical, social, emotional and spiritual development. Each classroom is designed with learning centers such as: “Art”, “Blocks”, “Books”, “Home-Living”, “Music”, “Nature”, “Puzzles”, and “Group-Time”.


Teachers are the key to the success of First Baptist. Teachers strive to give the very best of themselves to the children on a daily basis. The concepts taught are the building blocks of the preschooler's entire life. Children are what they see, experience and feel. In order to provide loving care, individual attention and instruction, each class has two teachers in the room at all times. Every teacher is CPR certified.


Each class follows an age-appropriate WEE Learn curriculum. We believe that very young children can learn the principles of the gospel when taught at their level. Monthly themes and enrichment activities are also included. Our daily program includes: Age appropriate preschool activities, Bible stories and related crafts, playtime (in and outside), music and movement, rotation centers, lunch and rest time.

Summer Program - Currently we do not have a summer program.
