Who We Are

Morningside Day Out (MDO) is a non-profit, half-day preschool program for children aged 6 months through Pre-K.  We are a small, warm community committed to learning through purposeful play and discovery. For 38+ years, we have offered a nurturing, secular educational environment that welcomes children and families of all backgrounds.

Located at the corner of Lavista and Briarcliff (near Whole Foods), MDO is convenient to all of Atlanta's Intown neighborhoods. For information about our classes, see the Program Overview.

We love MDO! I can’t say enough good things about this school and community. The variety of enrichment and sensory activities are great, the teachers are loving and very qualified, and the parents are some of my best friends.
