"And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of they children" Isaiah 54:13


As a ministry of the First Baptist Church Gilmer, the staff of the Child Development Center (CDC) looks forward to the opportunity of sharing a small part of your child's life. We strive to give the children excellent care as they experience activities geared toward their growth and development. Each child's uniqueness physically, emotionally and academically is considered. Also, it is our desire to create for every child in our care a safe and happy environment where Christian values and behavior are modeled for them.

  1. For Children: To build each child's social, emotional, cognitive and physical development through the teaching of Christian values. Allow each child a safe, nurturing environment where they can learn at their own individual pace.
  2. For Parents: To offer each parent the peace of mind that their child is in a safe and stimulating Christian environment while they are working. To provide support and resources for parents during their child's changing developmental stages.
