The First Baptist Church of Redlands seeks to prepare our children for a life-long journey of following Jesus. Caring for children and youth is a top priority. We want the children under our care to personally experience God's love for them and to know that God wants their best in all aspects of their lives.

Our childcare volunteers are:


Those working with children and youth are required to complete a thorough screening process that includes multiple reference checks and approval by our Christian Education Commission.


In conjunction with the Christian Education Commission, the church implements ongoing training for those serving with our children and youth. In addition, all primary volunteers leading our programs are CPR and First Aid certified through the American Red Cross.


Every children's program has a minimum of two screened volunteers at all times. In addition, the church staff members are on the grounds visiting the various classes during program hours.
