"Foothills MDO has been such a blessing to our family. I feel
confident when dropping off my boys that not only are they safe, but they are being well educated and taken care of. We have had a wonderful experience and I would strongly recommend the program to any parent of young children." - Chelsey

"What impresses me most about Foothills Church MDO is the staff. It is evident in the respectful manner the staff interacts with my girls that they genuinely care about them. They are concerned not only in building a strong educational foundation but also in building character. I love that the structure of the program has time incorporated for curriculum work, but also allows time for the kids to play!" - Nancy

"Foothills MDO has been a magnificent program for our son! Unlike other MDO programs we have tried, the teachers at Foothills use a curriculum and actually prepare the children for school, as well as teach the Christian morals and values we believe in!! The leadership team has always been so helpful and willing to work with us, and we feel like part of their family!!" - Candace

"Foothills MDO provides a very safe and structured environment for my kids. They are busy throughout the day and smiling when I pick them up. My 2-year old has really increased his speaking skills since being there." - Danielle
