Parents' Day Out in Glen Ellyn, IL.

FUMC PDO logo rectangular (1).png

The Parents' Day Out program is designed to offer a supportive, nurturing environment where children ages 2-4 are free to grow, explore, learn, and feel a sense of belonging.

We believe that God made everyone and every person has value. One of our goals is to help children identify ways in which we are all the same, learn about and appreciate our differences, and celebrate their own uniqueness! 

An important part of the PDO Ministry at First Church is also giving parents the opportunity to have a few hours a day to run errands, work, read a book, or do anything they please while their children are having fun, making friends, and learning.

Would you like more information about Parents' Day Out at First UMC of Glen Ellyn? Our PDO Director, Stephanie Herlien, would love to connect! Please email Stephanie at or give her a call at 630-664-5451.
