About First Kids

A Place to Play. Learn. Grow.

First Kids is proud to be the childcare ministry at First Church. We offer part-time and full-time care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. We also provide after-school and summer programming up to 5th grade and use age-appropriate activities and curriculum to nurture the hearts and minds of all children.

A New Name with
the Same Great Care

Prior to 2023, First Church offered three childcare programs: Children's World, First Kids Mother’s Day Out, and Creative School. To make things easier, these programs were consolidated into a single entity. We still offer the same childcare options.

The only difference is the new name:
First Kids!

Our Mission
& Vision

The mission of First Kids is to utilize play-based education to inspire learning and the growth of God’s children.


Our vision is to be the leading childcare program in Springdale that provides intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual growth. We aspire to be a nurturing environment where children of all ages and income levels can develop their minds and deepen their faith. By fostering a sense of curiosity, creativity, and compassion, we envision children equipped to positively impact their communities and the world!

All Are Welcome

At First Kids, we believe every child deserves a loving environment to play, learn, and grow. With that in mind, our program is open to the public, welcoming families from all backgrounds and beliefs. We are eligible for the Essential Vouchers program to help more families afford childcare, and we’re here to help with any paperwork. Join us as we embark on an exciting adventure of play-based learning and spiritual development. Enroll your child today!
