Mission Statement

The Church Weekday Education Program is a ministry of First Baptist Church that combines quality education and professional day care for children six weeks through sixth grade.  The Bible instructs us that “All the children shall be taught of the Lord, and great shall be the peace of thy children”  (Isaiah 54:13). We believe that the foundation of the ministry is to meet the individual needs of each child through providing loving, Christ-centered care.  We believe that an environment should be established and a curriculum followed that will allow for and encourage each child to explore, discover, and develop in all areas: cognitive, physical, social, emotional, self-help, and spiritual.
