The Children’s Department is dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment for the children of the seminary community. Our programs are centered on biblical truth and promote the development of life long skills.
Southern’s Childcare program is designed for children ages 18 months to four years of age. Once registered, each child’s place in the program will be reserved for the entire semester, allowing families to depend on SBTS as part of their weekly routine. Parents are able to choose between two options of care: once a week (Mondays) or twice a week (Tuesdays/Thursdays). During their time in Southern Childcare, children will be introduced to the alphabet, numbers 1- 15, and color recognition using Memoria Press’ Junior Kindergarten Curriculum. For more information about this program, please contact our Coordinator of Childcare, Ashley Akesson, at email@example.com.

SWI childcare exists to provide care to mothers who would otherwise be unable to attend classes. Fathers who are not physically in class or physically at work are expected to stay home to care for their children. This allows us to best serve the seminary community by offering childcare spots to those who need it most. We have a limited number of spaces available in each age group. We will do our best to accommodate as many families as possible.
Every Fall the Seminary Wives Institute offers the opportunity for both husband and wife to attend a two day event focused on marriage and the family in a ministry setting. Childcare is offered on a limited basis. Please ensure that you are first registered for the Family Life Conference (FLC) before registering for FLC Childcare. FLC Childcare registration will ensure your child has a space reserved for both days of the event. Due to limited space it is highly encouraged that you obtain private care for you children if possible.
