Kempsville Campus

The Kempsville campus is in the classroom area of the Community United Methodist Church


There are currently three campuses located in the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake areas. The first school, Mothers Day Out Preschool & Kindergarten, began in 1979. It has been operating in the same location since then, successfully serving families with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners.

Because of the many requests from families driving their preschoolers from Great Neck to attend Mothers Day Out Preschool and Kindergarten, the second school opened in Great Neck in 1991.

The requests for new schools continued as many families began to move to Chesapeake thus the Great Bridge School was opened in 1993. In 1992 kindergarten classes were added to the preschools to serve the demand for a high quality kindergarten education in our type of secure and caring environment.

All three schools have been through building, health and fire inspections as part of the requirements for state licensing. The schools are all monitored by Virginia State Licensing Division and are fully licensed by the state. In 1997 all schools went through the rigorous process of being accredited and are proud to announce their full private school accreditation.


The teachers and directors at these schools all firmly believe in a sound education in a safe and loving environment. We realize our children are still young and need to have fun and feel safe at school. School should be a positive and happy experience and lessons should be interesting. The curricula used to teach the children are designed with emphasis on age appropriate lessons.

Programs provide opportunities for children to practice self-control, taking turns and sharing. Learning is accomplished in a variety of ways that are designed to appeal and excite them.
