Welcome! We are so glad that you have stopped by to get more information on Getwell Day School.
Getwell Day School's mission is to provide a loving, Christian environment in order that your child may grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually. We already think it's the best, but Desoto's Best 2019 confirmed that feeling as GDS was voted "Best Daycare!"
We offer a two-day learning environment from 9AM - 2PM for children ages 2 and 3 (by September 1). You can choose a Monday/Wednesday or a Tuesday/Thursday program. For 4 year olds (age 4 by September 1), we offer a Pre-K four-day program from 9AM-2PM, Monday through Thursday.
Our Twos and Threes enjoy language arts, numbers, letters, Bible, music and arts & crafts. The Fours add penmanship, phonics, language poetry and simple math to their schedule along with all the fun activities. Child must be the age of their class by September 1 and all 3 & 4-year students must be potty trained.
We use the ABeka Book Curriculum, which provides curriculum and textbooks from a Christian perspective to Christian Schools. ABeka Book is built on a scriptural foundation for academic excellence and good character training. Christian Schools can benefit from a treasury of textbooks and teaching materials that reflect the very best in traditional education, comprehensive curriculum and Scriptural truths.
In addition to the ABeka Curriculum, we teach the children the social skills they need for a classroom environment. Skills such as sharing, listening and taking turns are skills that they will need when they go to Kindergarten. We also use music, art and other creative activities to reinforce the concepts that we teach.
Our annual enrollment period begins in January, though we will enroll children whenever there is an opening for their age group. You must fill out the Enrollment Forms, pay the Enrollment Fee and have a Mississippi Form 121 immunization form for your child(ren) to be enrolled.
