In 1986, Donna Carpenelli and Mercla Smith of First Baptist Church felt the community needed a safe, loving environment to care for children. So, First Baptist Church Mother's Day Out was born. Mom's in the area could drop their child off at the church and have a few hours to themselves. Then Herndon changed and a preschool was deemed more suitable to the needs of the community. WEEkday Preschool has been providing quality Christian education for 25 years.
