  • One-on-one interactions with staff members (including holding and cuddling)

Toddlers
(18 months - 2 years)

When your children become toddlers, they reach an age where they’re always moving and becoming more independent and expressive as they explore their world. That’s why we ensure a safe and secure environment where they can freely move and explore. Our teachers will provide a routine of engaging learning opportunities to encourage important developmental skills such as problem-solving, coordination, and self-help.

The benefits of our toddler care program include:

 
  • Opportunities to assist children in practicing and increasing their expressive language skills
  • Daily activities to encourage large motor and fine motor skills including running, jumping, climbing, scribbling, puzzles, and playdough
  • Adherence to Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Child Feeding Patterns
  • Teachers can assist with toilet learning

Preschool
(2.5 years - 3 years)

At this stage in life, preschool children are exploring their environment, learning new skills, and starting to form friendships with their classmates. Our daily schedule is full of activities to stimulate their minds and keep them busy. You can be confident that we’ll help get your child ready for kindergarten.

The benefits of our preschool program include:

 
  • Literacy and language activities include language skills, spoken words, written words, group stories, and some sign language
  • The children learn to gain personal responsibility for their own physical needs and are encouraged to try new and challenging tasks
  • Adherence to Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Child Feeding Patterns
  • Lessons in violence prevention are also given so that the children learn about feelings and emotions including how to express them in a healthy manner

Summer Camp
(2 years - 7 years)

First Baptist Church Gautier Childcare has an established summer program for school-age children with flexible full-time and part-time options. Since a child’s development happens year-round, we believe it should also continue in the summers. We have created an effective program that will ensure children are having fun and learning.

The benefits of our summer camp program include:

 
  • Field trips at least once a week
  • Daily interactive activities including science experiments, paper crafts, board games, and more
  • Opportunities to keep active in the form of sports and water-related fun
  • Visits from the fire department, petting zoo, and other organizations of interest
