For more than 40 years, First Baptist Church has provided a Christian atmosphere for the intellectual, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of children!
Since 1976, we have been offering full-day childcare through our 5 star state-licensed Child Care for children eight weeks to pre-kindergarten (Monday – Friday, 6:30 AM – 6:00 PM, year-round; Infant and Toddler Rooms 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM, year round). We also offer half-day care through our Mother’s Morning Out ministry during the school year for two year olds, three year olds and pre-kindergarteners on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and for toddlers Monday, Wednesday and Friday (9:00 AM – 1:00 PM).
Penny Corn, Weekday Ministries Director
Children enjoy the day with our team of classroom teachers following age-appropriate lesson plans including indoor/outdoor play, breakfast, hot lunch, afternoon snack and children/teacher directed center activities. Faith-building along with Kindergarten preparation lead the focus of our curriculum.
As a 5 Star state licensed day care we are inspected annually by the NC Divisions of Child Development and Early Education, the Cleveland County Health Department, the Fire Marshal and the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
We encourage children to reach their full potential by offering opportunities through which they experience love and understanding!
Clara Spangler, MMO Coordinator
Children are encouraged in the building of a strong foundation for faith development concepts through devotionals and inspirational songs. Creative and interactive learning activities help children to learn together each day.

Excellence in the care and teaching of children through love and encouragement as they develop at their own pace into the individuals God intends them to be!
