Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Purpose Statement 
Union Child Enrichment Center is a ministry of Union Baptist Church, operated on a non-profit basis. CEC extends the church’s ministry by providing biblically-based age appropriate care, education, and growth opportunities for each child enrolled and to provide a program of outreach to their families.
CEC strives for each child to be enriched with an atmosphere of love, acceptance and ultimate care as an individual. Opportunities will be provided for each child to grow and develop at his or her own pace intellectually, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The love of God and his son, Jesus Christ, are the basis for the bible-based curriculum with academic learning applied throughout. The weekday program is an important ministry of the church – it is an extension of the church in the community.
