Mother's Day Out Program

Little Scholars Christian MDO

The Little Scholars Christian Mother's Day Out program is under the direction of the Lewis Educational And Recreational Nonprofit. This program is an outreach to the China, Nome and Sour Lake communities and is specifically designed to promote social and emotional development, an opportunity for growth and structure, promote language and cognitive skills, boost pre-math and literacy skills, develop motor skills and nurture your child’s curiosity!

*This program is not a licensed child care center. This program is a Christian MDO and preschool program that meets twice a week for no more than 4 hours a day. 

We are non-denominational, read and teach from the New King James Bible and provide a loving and safe Christian environment for your child. The children will be introduced to chapel (sanctuary) and to a knowledge of God every class day!

We are blessed to be located at First Baptist Church - China at 607 Broadway; China, Texas 77613. While we are a separate organization from the church, we are blessed by the generosity of FBC to kindly host us!

Come learn and play with us!

 4 “Hear, O Israel ! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one ! 5 “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. 7 ” You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. 8 “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead . 9 “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Youth Educational Programs

Disaster Preparedness


LEARN and the American Red Cross is committed to helping the youth become better prepared for a disaster or emergency. We work closely with schools, scout groups, and youth-serving organizations to raise awareness of disaster risk and build resiliency among young people. Our age-appropriate preparedness materials and trainings educate youth with engaging activities and easy action steps. Each program presentation has individual lesson plans for Grades K-2nd; Grades 3rd-5th; Grades 6th-8th; Grades 9th-12th. 


Health & Safety Program


This program offers classes to the youth ages 5 to 18 years old in the Southeast Texas community and includes informative and certification First Aid and CPR classes, Babysitter's Training, personal hygiene, bloodborne pathogens and more! These classes will help the youth recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing and first aid emergencies and much more! It will also teach skills that the youth need to know to give immediate care to a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. 


Water Safety Program


The Longfellow's WHALE Tales is part of the American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety program. The American Red Cross believes that one way to help reduce drowning incidents among children ages 5 through 12 is to teach water safety education in elementary schools and other youth programs such as those programs the LEARN organization provides to the youth in the Southeast Texas community.

*These classes are informative and not in water training at this time.
