Standing Springs Baptist Church Child Development Center (CDC) was organized in 1977 by the church to be a ministry to families in the community. We seek to do this by providing a warm and secure atmosphere where children are cared for and the love of Jesus is taught to children and shown to parents. The CDC is a non-profit Christian Childcare Center serving children ages 6 weeks through K-5 and an After School Program and Summer Day Camp for children through 5th grade. Our primary goal is to provide a nurturing environment where each child has the opportunity to develop mentally, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. The CDC is a registered church facility (#56) with the South Carolina Department of Social Service (DSS). The center complies with required fire safety and Department of Health regulations and has annual inspections as required by law. All staff undergo an FBI and Child Abuse Registry Clearance before being hired. All staff have at least 15 hours of professional growth training annually.

We are a Christian education program where Biblical principles are incorporated into every aspect of our curriculum. The CDC uses a theme based curriculum for ages 2 and up centered around the Bob Jones Pathway to Preschool Curriculum. In addition the K-4 class incorporate some of the A Beka curriculum. The classes are structured and have a combination of large and small group activities. The Bible is used daily and children are involved in scripture memory. Ages 4 attend a weekly chapel. Children also work on academic readiness skills such as colors, shapes, letters and numbers. We offer music, art and physical activities for the children, too. We follow the public school cut-off date (September 1) for ages 2-4.
