Our Mission

The Child Care Programs are a ministry of the Gallatin Church of Christ that provides quality early childhood education to families in the Gallatin area. As a program of the church, we are committed to laying a foundation of biblical principles that includes the following goals:

  • To accept children of all faiths, and all socioeconomic or ethnic backgrounds.
  • To encourage emotional, social, physical, and mental developments through a variety of age-appropriate activities.
  • To teach the basic Christian values of love, kindness, tolerance, and sharing, while encouraging children to value themselves and others.
  • To strengthen family life through parent conferences, educational programs, and available resources of the church as needs arise.
  • To make every effort to provide quality and affordable childcare to all families.

Throughout our programs, we encourage children to progress in the following areas:

  • Learn to cope with a group situation — making and enjoying friends and sharing responsibility.
  • Learn motor skills appropriate for their age.
  • Develop a degree of independence and self-confidence appropriate for their age.
  • Develop social skills — giving and receiving, recognizing the feelings of others, finding acceptable ways of solving problems, and learning courteous and thoughtful behavior.
  • Learn simple skills in math and science, develop language skills, and develop appreciations for literature, music, and art.
  • Learn to appreciate home, school, church, and community, and recognize God’s plan for us to live happily in our world.
