History & Purpose

Kids Under Construction began in 1992 as a childcare ministry of First Baptist Church, Mount Vernon, Texas. The church’s goal: Minister to families in the community while working alongside parents to help every child grow to his/her greatest potential. We strive to accomplish that goal by providing a staff that is caring, loving and devoted to teaching children. Every child is a gift of God. We recognize that spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional wellbeing is important in the growth of children. Our teachers strive to meet each child’s needs by providing developmentally appropriate curriculum and activities that support proper development.
