Meet Our Director


Sara Fischer - MMO Director

I am so excited to be starting my 5th year working at My Morning Out. MMO has been blessed with an amazing group of teachers who love and care for the children and families in this program, and I am looking forward to seeing how the children blossom and grow this school year at MMO.


My husband Jason and I have been married 18 years and have 2 boys and a daughter. My daughter went through this program from the age of 2 and she loved her time here and the friends she made. 

This will be a wonderful school year and I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with you and to be part of your child’s journey through school.
