Child Development Center
Teach a child to choose the right path
and when he is older he will remain upon it.
It is an extended ministry of First Baptist Church, Arlington, providing a Christian based weekday education program from 6:30a.m. to 6:00p.m., Monday through Friday.
The purpose of the FBC Child Develpment Center is to establish a full-time, nonprofit Christian weekday program of child care as a way to extend the ministry of First Baptist Church, Arlington. We accomplish this by providing care, education, and development for each child enrolled to his or her greatest potential – spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially. We also provide a program of ministry and outreach to the families of the children enrolled.
We are located at:
300 South Center
Arlington, TX 76010

Thank you for your interest in the Child Development Center.
This program is an extension of the Preschool Ministry of First Baptist Church. We are not only here to provide quality child care for your children during the day, but to minister to your entire family. I encourage you to take note of the opportunities of the church and join us when you can.
We are committed to providing quality Christian care for your children. Our open door policy allows you to visit your children in our program at any time. We also have opportunities for you to be active in our weekday program through volunteering, assisting with parties, teacher appreciation, and attending parent activities.
Thank you again for your interest in our program. We look forward to working with you. Please call if you have any further questions.
