About us

Kids First opened in August of 1997 as a ministry of First Evangelical Covenant Church. Our mission at Kids First is to express the grace of Jesus Christ while lovingly providing Christian childcare and education to the children and families of the community. We firmly believe and teach that it is necessary to know Jesus Christ as the Lord of Life and that the Bible is God’s true word. Kids First is also dedicated to helping children develop and learn to their highest potential in a fun and exciting environment.

We have several philosophies that direct our childcare methods. They are as follows:

  • We believe children are a gift from God and as Christian educators we are to follow Jesus’ command: “Let the little children come and do not hinder them.” (Matthew 19:14)
  • We believe in teaching and modeling Christ’s love in a developmentally appropriate environment under the supervision and structure created by professional, trained educators.
  • We believe that children learn through playing, creating, and exploring.
  • We believe in educating children in order that they may reach their greatest potential.
  • We believe children should have fun and always be safe.
  • We believe that a child enrolled is a family enrolled.
  • We believe in putting time and effort into acquiring and maintaining open, friendly, and cooperative relationships with each child’s family.
  • We believe in helping all those who walk through our doors to develop and grow in their relationship with Jesus.
