Temple Baptist School and Day Care opened its doors in 1953 as a full-time Christian preschool. Our goal is to benefit the children, parents and community in any way possible. A child's early years are a time of growth and development. Through natural curiosity and encouragement each child will gain the skills that are so vital to their future education. Here at Temple, our mission is to provide a Christian environment where each child is treated as a special creation of God with the opportunity to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically, socially and intellectually. 

What ages do you care for?

We offer full time care and early education to children ages 6 weeks - 5 years. Children can be dropped off and picked up between the hours of 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM. 

What are your classroom ratios?

Here at Temple we use the highest voluntary enhanced requirements. This means lower ratios in your child's classroom!

  • Infants 1:4 or 2:7
  • Toddlers 1:5 or 2:10
  • Two's 1:8
  • Three's 1:9
  • PreK 1:12

What curriculum do you use?

We use ABC Jesus Loves Me Curriculum. You can find out more about her curriculum through this link:  https://www.abcjesuslovesme.com/ 

What about meals?

Children will bring a lunchbox packed with breakfast, lunch and snack. We are a nut free facility, so this means no peanut butter. We do suggest SunButter as a tasty alternative. Check out Pinterest for awesome ideas on packing lunches!

What is your sick policy?

To prevent the spread of illness we have a strict sick policy in place. If a child vomits, has two diarrheas or has a fever of 100 degrees or higher, they must be sent home and stay out the next day. 

Do you administer medicine?

We are a medicine free facility with the exception of Epi-Pens, insulin, nebulizers, inhalers and diaper creme.  What this means is that we will not administer fever reducing medicines, steroid cremes, antibiotics, sun block or bug spray.

What is your approch to discipline?

Here at Temple we use a technique called redirection. With this technique we try to focus the child's energy into something positive. Redirection stops the inappropriate activity immediately and sets the groundwork for learning appropriate behaviors.

Do you provide care year-round?

Yes, we provide year-round care for our families. Feel free to take a look at our calendar.

What security do you offer?

Our doors are locked and require a personal identification number for entry. A parent/guardian's written approval and photo ID's are required for unfamiliar faces.
