Children’s Day Out (CDO)

by Jaime Riordan
Summer is winding down and we are gearing up to start another year of CDO, our Children’s Day Out program here at Trinity.  We love offering a two day a week option on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s for parents who are seeking out opportunities to introduce their children to an affordable school setting without a full time commitment. 
While children do learn their colors, numbers, and letters while here are at CDO, we also get to help lay a biblical foundation by teaching them about God’s love for them, as well as how ordinary people played key roles throughout the Bible.  We have monthly Bible verses and focus on individual people of the Bible throughout the year.  I believe this will be my tenth year at CDO and there is something so special about going back to the basics of God’s love each year with these children. I get to be reminded over and over, right alongside them.
Each week children not only get to learn and grow in their classrooms, but they get to learn from our Trinity staff during chapel, they get to run around and work on gross motor skills in the gym. We have library time focusing on books and songs and we are looking forward to seeing how we can best use our outdoor space for some hands-on learning. 
Please join me in praying for the teachers and for each child that will come through the doors this year.  It is sure to be a great one!
