McGill Child Development Center

"Learning by Doing!"

About Us

On May 7, 1970, McGill Avenue Baptist Church launched a Christian ministry that would
provide a wholesome and much needed service to the children and families in our community. At that time we provided care for ages two through five. After reviewing the needs in our community, our waiting list and the many working parents in our area, we then decided to build a new facility which would service our area better and offer a wider range of ages.

On August 28, 1997, we opened our new “McGill Child Development Center” on
George W. Liles Parkway. We were the first building in this newly developed area.
Within three months of operation at our new facility, we had reached our capacity
caring for 200 children and employing approximately 32 qualified staff members.
