CDC - Paint HandsThe Berea First Baptist Child Development Center exists to help each child grow physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially and spiritually.  We believe that children are a gift from God, and that He has entrusted you, as parents, and us, as caregivers, to do our very best to help them grow into the adults God would have them to be.

Our staff is even more impressive than the facility God has blessed us with at BFBC. All of our staff in the CDC have been trained to provide the best care for your special one. We invite you to visit our CDC to discover how we are striving to provide a place children will grow and learn in a safe environment.

Weekday Children’s Ministries

Jesus took time to love and teach little children. We believe that he continues to bless their lives through our hearts, hands, and voices. In addition to the worship and study opportunities we offer on Sunday, Berea First Baptist Church offers a variety of ministries for preschoolers during the week. We offer several options of preschool ministry to meet the needs of the families of our community.

Kindergarten, 3 & 4 year old, is a program designed to provide opportunities for the mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual development of the child. We strive to help the child grow gradually and naturally in all areas of learning.

Our Curriculum provides development in:

  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Role Playing
  • Group Activities
  • Problem Solving
  • Practicing Language Skills
