Child Development Center

Our Preschool program cares for and educates children from birth through age five. For those seeking childcare for older children, we have our Afterschool and Summer programs.

Who We Are

New Testament Child Development Center is a ministry of New Testament Baptist Church in Monroe, North Carolina. We offer the families of our community an opportunity to enroll their children in a professional, Christian-based preschool, after-school program, or summer program. Our Child development Center has been awarded a 5-star rating by the state of North Carolina, because we believe in heartily giving our best in service to the Lord whom we represent (Colossians 3:23). We understand that not only are your children of value to you, but they are also of value to the Lord and to the future of our community.

Our Purpose

We not only seek to provide quality child care and education for a reasonable cost to local families, but we also endeavor to plant the seeds of the Gospel in the hearts of the children and families we serve. Education and character will take one far in our society, but only a life transformed through faith in Jesus Christ will know eternal “success” (Romans 6:23). We seek to equip your child with the character, education, and spiritual instruction that opens doors of opportunity both in this life and in the next. Children must begin and continue to build on the right foundation, and we are honored to help you provide that solid foundation for these little ones. We will care for your children in a loving and supportive manner, while providing a safe and healthy environment for them to learn and grow.

Christian Training

It is imperative that we not only train children educationally, but also spiritually. God’s plan is for the home, the church, and the school to work together in this important endeavor. In order to help establish a biblical foundation for your children, we hold a chapel service every Wednesday morning. Bible reading, Scripture memorization, prayer, and Bible songs are important parts of each day for our pre-school children. Our staff members do their best to model Christian attitudes and behaviors for the children they serve. The Bible teaches that our words, as well as our actions, have an impact on others. We seek to be a biblical and positive influence in the life of your child.

Our Programs

We engage your child from the earliest age to foster his or her development and educational growth. We implement The Creative Curriculum as described below and provide a Christian influence not only for toddlers but also for infants and crawlers.

Educational Curriculum

Our pre-school program educates and trains children from birth until kindergarten using the Creative Curriculum. The Creative Curriculum is grounded in 38 research-based objectives that are a guide and roadmap for teachers. The Creative Curriculum ensures that our program aligns with state early learning guidelines and the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework. Your child will be educated and enriched at the appropriate level in the following 10 areas of development and learning: Socio- Emotional, Physical, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Studies, The Arts, and English Language Acquisition. Please ask for further details and a complete list of the 38 objectives.

Nutrition is important, and as part of your tuition, we provide breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack in accordance with state nutrition guidelines. We commit to meeting the dietary needs of each child.

Our After school Program provides the same curriculum and developmentally appropriate practices as our Preschool. Our focus is to provide physical stimulation for the children after a day of classes. We also ensure that each child has the opportunity for quiet time, which allows for relaxation, reading, or attending to homework assignments. During free time, various activities are made available to encourage active play and socialization.

Transportation Services

During the school year, the following transportation services bring children to our facilities:

NTBM bus from Union Academy (upper and lower campuses)
School bus from Rocky River Elementary

Our Summer Program offers many of the same educational, developmental, and spiritual benefits as our school-year program. We implement age appropriate activities based on the interest of the students. We closely follow SACERS (School-Age Care Environmental Rating Scale) guidelines for our state.

At least 7 learning centers are available to students, including: Art, Science, Math, Manipulative & Games, Sand Play, Blocks, Dramatic Play, Music, Reading & Literacy, and a Quiet Area.

Other activities include: Outdoor play twice daily, one week of Vacation Bible School, weekly focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), weekly outdoor water play, weekly field trips, weekly Chapel, weekly Bible question and answer session with Pastor Tony, and an annual Field Day.

We also provide breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.

6:30 AM – 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Holiday schedules are provided in advance.

We have a stream-lined enrollment process, because we understand that your time is valuable. Only three items must be completed:

  • Attend an interview with our director, Mrs. Cindy Owen

  • Tour our facilities with your child

  • Submit application and related forms (including medical information and immunization records)

Please contact our office with any questions or to arrange an interview and tour.

We are in compliance with all state and county sanitation codes and have implemented a cleaning and sanitation schedule for our facilities. Teachers complete daily, weekly, and monthly tasks for their classrooms. We employ maintenance staff that assist our teachers with cleaning and sanitizing our facilities and classrooms. Bathrooms are cleaned at least twice daily. We follow sanitation procedures for food service (including storage and preparation) and diapering centers. All carpeting is cleaned bi-annually by an outside vendor. We take pride in a clean environment and believe that cleanliness promotes health and well-being for the children and staff.

Protecting your child is our greatest responsibility and priority. A child may only leave the premises with an individual who is listed on the Application for Child Care. Photo identification will be required for any individual picking up a child from our facility. Our buildings use doors of solid steel construction that remain locked for the safety of the children during operation hours. Our property is fenced and gated, providing safety while the children are supervised during outdoor play
