For Summer Enrollment, please contact us for availability.



Every child needs love, acceptance, security, guidance, a sense of trust, independence, and self control. At the Second Baptist Child Development Center, our goal is to give your child a quality Christian education in a loving environment. We strive to meet each child’s spiritual, emotional, social and intellectual needs. We provide a safe and secure environment so that our students feel free to take the important first steps in education which will mold and shape their lives long after they leave our center. Loving care is the best insurance through which a child will develop the security and positive attitude toward themselves needed to succeed in their lifetime. Teachers will team with parents to cultivate growth in independence and self respect.
