Our Program

Southside Baptist Child Care Center began in October, 1968. It provides a nine month program of Preschool classes for three years old as well as for four years old; daily child care for children (6 weeks through 5 years), after school care for school age children, and care during holidays/summer vacation. The Center is governed by a church-appointed committee, which meets regularly to study and to establish the policies of the Center in the best interest of the children involved.

Our CUrriculum

Our classes are open to any child regardless of the child's race, color, national origin, sex, or religious beliefs. The curriculum is appropriately designed to the age groups and the stages of development of each individual age group (not what the parents expect, i.e reading and knowing their letters). Since children learn best through hands-on activities, lessons are built around play and experimental learning. We believe that a child absorbs his/her concept of God from people, things, and experiences that are a part of his/her environment. Thus, a love and appreciation for God, Christ, and the things God has made are stressed through appropriate activities. Curriculum is designed to help the child develop in all facts of his life, physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Curriculum is based on the WEE LEARN series published by the Life Way Church Resources Group, Nashville, Tennessee.
