Welcome to Berean Child Development Center

Berean Child Development Center is a private, Christian childcare center located across the street from the Berean SDA Church campus in Atlanta Georgia. Since its opening in 1974, Berean Child Development Center has provided a safe, nurturing, Christian environment for children of any race, nationality, creed or ethnic origin from 2 to 6 years of age.

The purpose of Berean Child Development Center is to provide young children with a positive school experience in a warm and supportive Christian environment. It is our belief that play is the most important avenue to learning because it actively involves the child in the learning process and enables the child to experience concepts first-hand.

Our mission is to provide a hands-on learning environment for young children with the teachings of Jesus Christ inter-woven into a development-oriented curriculum.


Our learning goals are something that we work on daily. Setting them and striving to meet them are of the utmost importance to us.

Spirituality: The children will learn of Jesus as their friend and the special love he has for all them. They will learn about God through nature and what He has created; how every person is special in the eyes of Jesus. Character words shown on the theme page will be integrated through words by teachers during worship, songs, and skits.

The children will learn to interact with others in positive ways on a daily basis; being encouraged by teachers to strengthen their impulse control (using gentle touch) and kind words with one another.

Children will further learn about his or her world, and developing language, listening & understanding skills. Language will be enriched and cognitive development will be enhanced by kinesthetic activities.

Children will also verbally learn to relate to other classmates. Drama Play (pretending) and group activities will be part of the children’s day at preschool.

Eating by themselves, holding cups to drink, getting their own cups of water when thirsty, putting toys away, wiping up spills, flushing toilets, washing their own hands, verbalizing feelings, problem-solving, sharing and recognizing the feelings of others.
