We are committed to our mission of ministering to children and their families while striving for excellence in all that we do.
Who We Are
Mother's Day Out and Christian Preschool (MDOCP) is a state-licensed, faith-based preschool program that teaches children about God and His love for us. We currently offer nine classes for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Classes meet during the public school year as well as the summer months of June and July (when interest warrants it). Both two and four-day schedule options are available.
Dates and Times
MDOCP is in session late August through late May during the public school year. Classes meet Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM until 2:30 PM. Extended care hours are also available from 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM for those that need extra time in the mornings. A summer session is also offered in June and July if enough interest warrants offering a class.
Three schedule options are available to choose from:
- Monday and Wednesday (two day option)
- Tuesday and Thursday (two day option)
- Monday through Thursday (four day option)
MDOCP currently offers nine age-based classes. Children are assigned to a class based on their age as of September 1st and remain in that class for the entirety of the school year.

School Calendar and Class Schedule
Upcoming school-wide events are displayed in the events list on this web page as well as the events list for the individual classroom school pages. The complete School Calendar for 2019-2020 can also be downloaded.
A Typical Class Day
A typical class day begins with children arriving and being signed into their classrooms by their parents or guardians. Each classroom has an individualized schedule specifically designed to meet the needs of their children, but all include the following components (in no particular order):
- Circle Time
- Snack Time
- Playground Time
- Sensory Play
- Bible Story
- Nap Time
- Specials (Music, Movement, and Chapel)
Our program offers weekly specials featuring music, movement, and chapel. The music class teaches singing and basic rhythms. Our movement class includes basic exercises, stretches, and other movements designed to get those wiggles out! Chapel meets twice a week and consists of Bible stories told in a way that little children can comprehend and to help them understand and absorb the Godly lessons being taught.
Our school staff works diligently to foster a loving relationship with each child using positive discipline when needed to redirect children and encourage friendship and a love for learning that will last throughout the child's lifetime. The school staff includes our director, Jenny Bromonsky, assistant director, Heather Kelley, music coordinator, Rachel Rangel, movement coordinator, Kaureen Hartwick, and 24 classroom teachers.

Rachel Rangel (Music Coordinator)
Hi parents! My name is Rachel Rangel and I have been teaching at MDOCP for three years now. My husband and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary this Summer and we have been blessed with three wonderful children, all of which have attended school at MDOCP. I was born in San Antonio, grew up in Austin, where I met my husband in the 4th grade, moved to San Antonio for high school, then back to Austin when we got married. We've lived in South Austin, Leander and Kyle, so safe to say I'm a Texas Girl and I bleed maroon!! Go Aggies! My family and I attend church at the Fellowship at Plum Creek and love spending our weekends either being couch potatoes or outdoors finding new trails to hike. I live off coffee, Jesus and the chaos of having three kids, 6 years old and younger. I have worked as a temporary sub, resource coordinator/first call sub, full time teacher and now I'm back to resource coordinator. It has been my favorite position because I get to meet and love on ALL the babies. I love walking down the hall and getting hugs and high-5's from all the classes. I know we will have a wonderful year! God Bless.
Kaureen Hartwick (Movement Coordinator)
Hello, my name is Kaureen Hartwick and I am very excited to be the teacher for the Monday/Tuesday Movement classes! My goal is to get all the kids moving and active while having as much fun as possible. I am a mom to 2 two boys, (Alex 9, Evan 7) and I have been married to my high school sweetheart for over 11 years now. I have been substituting here at MDOCP since September and I have previous experience working at an in-home daycare as well as at the Yongsan Army base Child Development Center in Seoul, South Korea. I truly love running and dancing around with all the kids and I hope to get the kids moving and laughing each day that I am lucky enough to teach them.
