 Methodist Day School (M.D.S.) is a Christian preschool for ages 12 months through kindergarten located in the First United Methodist Church.  The Day School operates Monday through Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. from September through May (following the Conroe Independent School District calendar as closely as possible).  Morning and afternoon extended care program is offered. (see times below)
  
M.D.S. has provided quality experiences for children for over three decades.  Our program is designed to provide a Christian atmosphere for the cognitive, physical, social/emotional, and spiritual development of children.  M.D.S. serves children of all races, nationalities, and religious creeds, ages 12 months through Kindergarten. 
  
Emphasis is placed on developing each child's self-esteem and the fulfillment of their highest God-given potential.  The staff is experienced in working with young children and receives training in the field of early childhood education throughout the school year.  They value the needs of each child and strive to provide opportunities for each child to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially. 
 
During the school year many events and activities are planned for the children such as Pumpkin Patch, Thanksgiving Feast, Pictures with Santa, Pajama Day, Puppet Show, Nana Puddin, Police Department, Fire Department, Houston Children Museum Planetarium, and Splash Day.

GOALS:
Our teachers help each child become a self-reliant, secure child of God by showing children they are loved and accepted as individuals.  Through guidance and a caring discipline, our staff fosters a positive self-concept in children.
