Punkin Patch Child Development Center is a non-profit early childhood care and Christian curriculum educational experience for children sponsored by First Baptist Church of Kansas City, Missouri, but strives to be self-supportive through the collection of fees. We plan to provide quality childcare by limiting enrollment and  employing staff who enjoy children and are devoted to healthy child development. It is our goal to supplement family and home life in an environment consistent with home care.
