Come Discover the MMO Difference

Come learn about MMO Preschool Programs and what makes it such an exciting place of learning at every stage of development. 

MMO Preschool Programs is truly unlike any other early learning center. We provide our students a rich, nurturing learning experience while accommodating the busy schedules of today’s families. MMO Preschool Program’s educational philosophy supports a highly-trained staff and a respectful environment that fosters all areas of child development within the community of the classroom and beyond.  We understand the importance of each child’s learning style and growth. One critical way we support this is with low adult/child ratios in each program.  Bright, spacious classrooms as well as both indoor and outdoor play areas provide a warm, inviting environment that stimulates both physical and mental creativity. Our play-based approach encourages discovery, inquiry and problem solving from our youngest students through Pre-K. The MMO Preschool Community is comprised of families who live and work in Montclair and the surrounding communities.

The First Congregational Church in Montclair, NJ established Mother’s Morning Out Programs (hence the acronym MMO) in 1982 as a non-sectarian, non profit child care opportunity for parents for a few hours each morning. Since then, MMO Preschool Programs is fully licensed by the State of New Jersey and now serves students 12 months to 5 years. We operate from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and offer full time, part time, school year and summer programs with extended enrichment care options.


MMO Preschool Programs for the 2019-2020 school year include:
Ladybugs (12 months to 19 months)
Crickets and Grasshopper Programs (20 months to 29 months)
Bumblebees (2-1/2 years- young 3’s)
Dragonflies  (Older 3’s)

Summer Days (toddlers-pre-k)


MMO Preschool Programs serve approximately 130 children per year whose families live and work in Montclair, and the surrounding communities.
