Mother's Day Out

Preparing them to Learn

Teaching our children to love what is good, true and beautiful!

At Fortis your child will be entering a safe environment where they will learn to love God, His creations, and develop the academic skills that will prepare them for kindergarten.  Our MDO program is designed for children ages 3 to 5 and we offer separate classes for 3 and 4+ year olds.

Meets at school: Monday and Wednesday

***Classes begin August 12th, 2019***
