Travelers Rest, SC 29690 | (864) 631-6769

Palmetto Proper's Mother's Afternoon Out (MAO) Program is available to all children up to 10 years old. Our afternoon program is available 3 days per week on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 1pm until 5pm and runs the entire calendar year with scheduled holidays. Our children are split into groups according to their age to best suit the needs of each individual child.  Our goal is to provide a fun, stimulating and safe environment to contribute to the growth and development of young children. We accomplish this mission through educational activities, socialization opportunities, physical exercise and life skill introduction. While we are instilling more than just a play zone, Palmetto Proper does rally behind children being curious individuals who learn best through pretending, exploring and discovering by play!  Our time together consists of age appropriate activities. You can expect your child's day to include music, story-time, crafts, circle time (discussing weather, shapes, colors, etc), and of course a WHOLE LOT OF PLAY! Older children can expect themed learning where our planned activities will center around a certain topic such as letter/number recognition, life skills, phonics, etc. You will see their physical, social and emotional skills blossom as they interact with other children and staff, fostering self-esteem and independence.   Financial Policy: Registration Fee: $100 (per calendar year per family) Registration for our program begins on the first business day in March of each calendar year. Your spot is guaranteed once you pay the registration fee. To continue holding your spot, monthly tuition is requested and payable on time each month.
