early education-after school care-summer learning camp

Welcome to the Baptist Temple Early Learning Center (BTELC) family.

BTELC is a non-profit that has served San Antonio's community on the southeast side since 1970. We offer early education for children 4 weeks to 12 years, after school learning care and summer learning camp for school agers. We utilize the Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum with supplemental Frog street Curriculum to help provide the best in child development for children we serve.  In 2019 we partnered with the surrounding community, Charity Ball Association, HEB Tournament of Champions and the Baptist Health Foundation to create two inclusive playgrounds 6 - 23 months and 2 - 12 years and an Early Learning Garden.  With these wonderful resources our children of all abilities play together and learn about their growing world around them.  We are housed on the campus of Baptist Temple and we are currently working towards Texas Rising Star certification.  We appreciate the opportunity to provide a safe, mentally stimulating, and well-supervised environment for your children.  BTELC is part of a family of churches and nonprofits that work together to show God's love in practical ways to our community.


We recognize that all children are God's unique creation. Our goal is to provide a safe place for children and their parents to discover God's world, and how it works. Additionally, we encourage our children to love others and make good choices as they grow. To do this our staff works together integrating the most basic Christian principles with a STEAM based curriculum to provide a safe and positive learning environment. Our teachers work to foster curiosity, critical thinking and healthy physical development through play, exploration, and by modeling good manners, hygiene and extreme generosity of spirit.  We believe this is a great benefit to the families of our community and their children.
Baptist Temple Early Learning Center is licensed by the Texas Department of Protective and Family Services to operate as an extension and outreach arm of Baptist Temple Church. We accept CCS.
