All About PDO


PDO Preschool is an extended day preschool.  We offer social, emotional and developmental learning experiences for children age 12 months through 6 years old.  PDO Preschool opened in 1981 as an outreach program of Evangel Heights United Methodist Church.  The preschool is inter-denominational and provides services to families in South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger and nearby communities.


The preschool is housed in the educational wing of the church.  Spacious, well lit, and attractive, the rooms are fully furnished and equipped to satisfy children’s needs and to stimulate learning.  The fellowship hall and fenced in play yard are used for large motor play spaces.


Preschool Committee


Parents’ Day Off Preschool is a non-profit and is administered by a Preschool Committee consisting of the Director, Church Members, Christian Education Director of the church and the Pastor.


The Committee welcomes you and your child.  We know that most of you have your own church and that’s great!  We do, however, know that some of you do not have a church.  Either way, we want you to know that you are always welcome in our church-- whether just to attend preschool, to attend church services, or to attend any of the varied activities that our church presents.

Give us a call:



The purpose of Parents’ Day Off Preschool is to provide a Christian environment of quality child care and preschool development in a structured setting for young children and to provide parents with time off for personal fulfillment in order to improve the quality of their parenting.
