Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old
he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6

About Our Center

First Baptist Church Child Development Center  is committed to providing quality childcare in a Christian atmosphere.  Our teaching staff is dedicated to ensure that each child has a positive learning experience.  We want to help your child develop mentally (in wisdom), physically (in stature), spiritually (in favor with God), socially (in favor with people), intellectually (through learning experiences).  We wish to accept each child as he/she is, allowing them to grow in their own way and at their own pace, according to their individual needs.


Our goal is to help each child have happy and meaningful experiences and a variety of opportunities to discover and develop his/her potential, the self that God has given them, so that they may live life fully as a preschooler and will be prepared for the years to follow.


Our ministry gives children the tools necessary to become happy, healthy, successful preschoolers. We offer the following classes…



  • Chapel
  • Stretch-n-Grow

We also have ...

  • An emergency and Crisis Plan
  • Unlimited Parental Access
  • Security Coded Entrance
  • Super Sanitation Rating

Our Curriculum

The curriculum is based on themes.  The teachers are responsible for planning activities for art, music, science, language, math, and outdoor games.  We provide a monthly calendar which includes the themes and special event which we have planned.
