The ChildCare 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.
