Your Child Is in Great Hands

Philosophy and Mission

The purpose of Yates Baptist Child Development Center (CDC), a mission of Yates Baptist Church, is to provide high quality early childhood education in a loving and supportive Christian environment. Our mission is to provide a stimulating - yet relaxed - environment where each individual child can experience  acceptance, love, and success. We nature the development of the "whole child:" physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Health & Nutrition

Our menus focus on fresh, local ingredients whenever possible. You can expect your child to be introduced to new flavors and textures as well as some healthy familiar dishes. Most everything is made in house including all baked goods, dips, and sauces. We're happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions your child may have while still providing them the same fun and nutritious meals.

Technology & Social Media

Yates CDC employs the usage of technology in and out of the classroom to communicate with parents throughout the day and to promote the child’s progress with pictures and videos sent through Kid’s Reports. Online material is also available through Google Classroom for children at home.

Pinnacles & The Creative Curriculum

Yates CDC views children as gifts from God, each with unique needs and abilities. Yates seeks to create an open-ended environment where children can grow in harmony with God's design. We use the Pinnacles Curriculum and The Creative Curriculum to connect with children and individualize their care and education.
