Covid-19 Update

June 3, 2020

We continue to monitor the developments of COVID-19 and its impact on our ministries and our community. After careful consideration, our leadership has determined that it is in the best interest of our staff and families to suspend summer 2020 programming for The Growing Place. Deposits for summer programming will be refunded to families.

Aversboro Road Baptist Church continues to navigate the process of reopening our church facilities and scheduling of ministry events. Our advisory team will soon release information about our transition process that will ensure our continued focus on the mission of the church while being guided by the wisdom of the CDC and the NC Department of Health and Human Services.

Over the summer, we will be preparing to reopen The Growing Place for Fall Programming in August! We will communicate directly with those pre-enrolled, as well as through Social Media and our website about our start date and opportunities for the fall! Our staff will be training and preparing for the new year. We will also be working to implement the new procedures for safety as guided by the Child Care Division of the NC Department of Health and Human Services.

We appreciate your involvement and support of The Growing Place and its ministry to kids and their families. We also appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate these difficult decisions. If you any questions, you may email us at, or contact the church office at 919.779.0434 to speak to our Student Pastor, Joe Sinclair.

The Growing Place Preschool

Our mission is to provide a Christian environment where preschoolers (birth through pre-kindergarten) can safely play, grow, and learn about their relationship to God, others, and the world. The Growing Place is committed to providing a loving, nurturing, and safe environment in which your child develops spiritually, socially, and academically.
Our Program is open Monday-Friday 9:15am-1:15pm.

A theme-based curriculum is used with all age groups. The whole-group and center-based instructional activities emphasize the objectives each month. Students are encouraged to participate in creative thinking and reasoning, expressive free play, and practicing social and language development skills.

Teachers provide a monthly calendar so parents have the option to participate at home in reinforcing their child’s experience at The Growing Place.

Our Staff

All teachers are professing Christians committed to providing support and assistance to you in your child’s developmental journey. Our staff has been trained to provide the educational foundation to equip your child as he/she grows through the preschool years. Staff is required to attend CPR, First Aid, and to have educational training in child growth and development.
