A House of HOPE
We are celebrating 25 years of providing a safe, loving, and Christ-centered learning environment for your children of all ages. We have been serving families of the Bristol community since 1988. Our Childcare Center was created by two Christian women who loved children and saw a need in the community. We started with one child and have been growing ever since. We are licensed by the state of Tennessee with qualified teachers and staff to care for your children and teach them in an atmosphere based on the love of Jesus Christ. We are located at 822 Tennessee Avenue, Bristol, Tennessee. Our phone number is 423.989.4343. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 6:30 am to 5:30 pm. Click on the link provided for directions. Call us and set up a time to come by for a visit. You can observe first hand what your child can experience.
We are a ministry of Tennessee Avenue Baptist Church. We desire this ministry to be a service to the community by providing a warm and caring home away from home for children. We strive to provide the best alternative care for your children at a price that is affordable. Our program takes into account the whole child’s physical, emotional, academic, and spiritual dimensions. It would take several lengthy pages to explain every detail about our philosophy of childcare and values. If you would like to talk specifically about this please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to talk with you. We desire to minister to every family in any way we can.

All learning activities are “child friendly”. As a teaching curriculum, we use one of the most popular and best Christian-based teaching programs in the country called “A Beka Book”. They are the largest Christian textbook publisher in the world and have been providing quality education materials since 1974.
Click on the link provided to see more information on the curriculum. This curriculum will teach students the basic educational fundamentals such as ABC’s, including how to recognize them and what sounds they make, as well as colors, shapes, and numbers.
Our curriculum classes are on the same schedule as the school year – September through May. During the summer months we supplement the A Beka Book curriculum with other Bible-based classes. The children get to learn about God’s Word as well as Jesus and His ministry and His purpose for us today.
