First Baptist Child Development Center is part of the total ministry of First Baptist Church. It is a quality program that provides opportunities that enable a child to realize his or her own God-given potential. In addition to providing our children with excellent custodial care, we provide an atmosphere and environment that will help them develop in happy, healthy, caring surroundings. 

At First baptist Child Development Center, we offer our children a christian atmosphere conductive to learning. Our program gives special attention to five critical areas of development using the Early Learning Guidelines.

Through developmentally appropriate practice, we strive to...

Spiritual: Help our children know and understand that God is real and He loves them. 

Emotional: Help our children develop independence and self-confidence.

Social: Help our children understand the importance of friendship, respecting others, and how to function within a group.

Physical: Provide activities that help our children's bodies grow healthy and strong. 

Independence: Encourage our children to develop a secure feeling about their environment by providing hands on, open ended activities for them to explore.
