The mission of the Child Development Center is to extend the ministry of and to help accomplish the vision of First Baptist Church. This will be accomplished by providing care, education, and development for each enrolled child to reach his/her greatest potential...spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially, and by providing developmentally-appropriate activities and guidance. We will also provide a program of ministry and outreach to the families of the children enrolled.
Statement of Purpose
Realizing the early years of a child's life are crucial to all future development, our desire is to supplement the home during these formative years, not to replace it. The goal of the Child Development Center is to:
- Provide an enriching environment, created and supported by Christian teachers and staff, in which young children have the opportunity to develop fully.
- Provide a variety of enrichment experiences which stimulate the children's curiosity, creativity, and desire to learn, encourage positive feelings about themselves and others, and help them in developing their skills.
- Provide for the spiritual growth of the children by emphasizing Christian values and beliefs.
