Mother's Day Out

How Kainee Bram Launched and Grew a Successful Mother’s Day Out Business – BtR 153

Kainee Bram shares her story about stepping out in faith to open her business, a chain of mother’s day out programs and a preschool in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Mother’s Day Out

A mother’s day out program is similar to a daycare. Parents drop off their children for a set amount of time. These children are cared for by a professional staff who go through a background check, and receive CPR and other required training.

A traditional daycare may be a full-time, Monday through Friday operation. Whereas, a mother’s day out program may be open a few days a week for a limited window. This kind of program is designed to give the stay-at-home parent additional support. While the child is in a mother’s day out program, parents can run errands, attend a church bible study, or just take a break.

If you’re thinking, “How hard can it be as a stay-at-home parent?” shame on you! Parenting is hard. While many of us are doing what work in an office, an oil rig, or some other business, a stay-at-home parent is staying vigilant keeping a baby from getting hurt, and also pours into the development of that child…for free! A program like what Kainee offers can give a parent a much needed window to take care of things with focus and peace of mind.

Kainee Bram

Kainee Bram was the former Children’s Ministry Director for Church Unlimited a number of years before venturing into business for herself with mother’s day out programs, a preschool, and daycare in Corpus Christi, Texas. Her mission is to provide parents the opportunity to engage in other activities while their children are cared for in a safe, loving environment designed for that child’s developmental needs.

She partnered with local churches and a mixed martial arts dojo in the Corpus Christi area to launch her first two locations. Later, as she found success, there was an opportunity to purchase and take over a daycare in Corpus Christi. It included a preschool. This episode shares how she navigated the waters of licensing, hiring, and state regulations to create her dream business.

She currently lives, works, and attends church in Corpus Christi, Texas, with her husband Scott.

  1. Hi! I love the talk. I have such a discontentment and feel like I’ve been led to do a Mother’s Day out in my neighborhood for the many stay at home moms and their sanity and hearts. I’ve been in childcare professionally for 10 years, I know the ins and outs of licensing but I can’t find info on starting a Mother’s Day out being license exempt but I imagine they are.
    Does this speaker have any info on how she approached this in her venture?

  2. I’m the director of a program at First United Methodist in Groves, Texas. We are wanting to go to 3 days a week 5 hours a day. I’ve been told that church parent day out or daycares don’t have to be licensed. They do have to follow a few regulations like health records on all students, up to date vaccinations, attendance records, teachers CPR/First Aid certified and background checks.

    • Hi, Connie! I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to get with you. I just called your Mother’s Day Out program and left you a voicemail. Please call me anytime!

  3. Hi,
    Im so glad I stumbled on this since our stories sound somewhat similar. I walked a way from a lucrative career to do ministry and take care of kids. Now, I am a pastor’s wife, former children’s ministry director, preschool teacher and part time online teacher. I am looking to start a mother’s day out at a rural church in Georgia but I have no idea where start?! Im listening to this podcast as I comment.

    • Hi, Amber! This is Kainee Bram. Would love to talk to you. Please leave a voicemail if I don’t answer right away.
      Call anytime! 361-271-0709
