JAM Parents’ Day Out

The Jesus and Me (JAM) Parents’ Day Out is a ministry of Etna United Methodist Church and is a support system to parents and other caregivers in the Etna, Pataskala, Pickerington, Reynoldsburg, Baltimore and other nearby communities.

The program gives stay-at-home parents and others caregivers a much-needed day for themselves. Children ages 6 months through age 5 are exposed to a Christian curriculum, socialization and lots of fun - including play time, crafts, music, Bible stories, special visitors and large motor skills. By the way, we're nut free, because we recognize the dangers of this allergy.

JAM Parents’ Day Out is held on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. September through May, and follows the Southwest Licking School District’s schedule. Our caregivers are Christians, first aid and CPR trained, experienced, and background checked.

Fee Schedule

There is a $20 registration fee per child. This fee is non-refundable and secures a place for your child in the program. The cost is $75 per month for one child; $65 per child for two children; and $55 per child for three children. Your first payment will be due on the first day of Parents’ Day Out in September. At the end of the summer, we will mail all registered families a calendar and the paperwork needed to begin in the fall.
