Wesley Kids Day out was established in 1973 as a Christian outreach to parents and children of our community.
Our mission is to offer children a constructive, fun environment, as well as an opportunity to socialize with children their own age while developing skills to aid them in preschool and kindergarten.
During the school year, our program runs M, W, F from 9 am to 2 pm, following the District 203 calendar. During the summer (June and July) our program runs T, W, TH from 9am to 1pm.

A Typical Day
To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
We believe in children having fun through free play. It gives them time to use their imagination and to practice socialization skills with others.
Each day, children spend time in the “muscle room” to work on large motor skills. Leapfrogs often walk over to Central Park when the weather permits, allowing fresh air, fun and reinforcing community safety.
Busy Bees and Caterpillars are encouraged every day to look through books and try to read with the help of their teachers. Leapfrogs and Butterflies follow a theme and/or letter, as well as story time with their teacher.
Children practice fine motor skills while creating fun art projects related to the week's theme, seasons and celebrations.
Children practice counting, sing songs, and play games according to the week's theme and age group.
