Parents' Day Off Preschool

Play-Based Preschool for South Bend, Mishawaka, and Granger Families

About PDO Preschool

Parents' Day Off (PDO) Preschool is an extended day preschool that meets here at Evangel Heights United Methodist Church. PDO offer social, emotional and developmental learning experiences for children age 15 months through 5 years old. PDO opened in 1981 as an outreach program of the church and continues under the leadership of our Director, Brooke Holdeman and the pastors of the church. The preschool is inter-denominational and provides services to families in South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger and other nearby communities.

The preschool is housed in the educational wing of the church. Every classroom is spacious, well-lit, clean, and fully equipped to both satisfy children’s needs and also stimulate learning.  The fellowship hall and fenced in play yard are used for large motor play spaces.
