Child Development Opportunities

Learning begins long before a child enters school.  At First Baptist Church's Child Development Center and Emmanuel Preschool, we provide a learning environment rich with experiences that promote development needs of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.  We want our children to feel loved, safe, and secure in a Christian atmosphere.  We provide all-day developmental childcare Monday - Friday.  


Due to the popularity of our facility, we must operate off of a waiting list, but we would welcome the opportunity for you to tour our facilities and discuss what we have to offer.  For more information, please e-mail our Minister of Childhood Ministries, Vicky Donelson.

First Baptist Church Child Development Center

The mission of the First Baptist Child Development Center is to provide an environment of Christian care, nurture, and witness to preschoolers and their parents during the workweek.  We strive to have a clean, friendly, Christian atmosphere at all times and to allow the children freedom to grow by intentional play that reinforces learning in developmentally appropriate ways.  We strive to ensure that all children are given every opportunity to be Kindergarten-ready when they leave our program.  We offer programming Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.  For more information, view the documents below and call our office at (270) 842-0382.
