About Us

Anastasia Baptist Academy (formerly Anastasia Baptist Child Care Ministry) was established in August of 1975 as an outreach ministry of the Anastasia Baptist Church. The church committed to a program of ministering to children and families by offering quality Christian education and care to young children. We have continued to build upon this early commitment by encouraging both our teachers and our children to grow spiritually, emotionally, socially, mentally and physically. These goals are achieved by our use of Christian-based teaching and curriculum guidelines that focus on developmentally appropriate teaching practices for each stage of growth and development. We are greatly blessed to be able to provide a nurturing environment for children from infancy through five years of age.
