Olive Baptist To Celebrate Opening Of Ministry Village Early Learning Center

September 16, 2018

Olive Baptist Church will hold a dedication service next weekend for their new $1.6 million Ministry Village Early Learning Center, followed by an open house.

The Ministry Village ELC will provide Christ-centered, high-quality care year-round to infants and children ages 3 months to 5 years, and will participate in the Florida Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) program.

“Ministry Village at Olive is devoted to meeting the needs of our community members and helping them pursue and achieve their most excellent futures,” said Stan Lollar, executive director of Ministry Village at Olive. “Our work with people who are struggling with addiction or financial difficulties continues to be fundamental to our organization.

“But with the emerging research on early learning in Escambia County, and the struggles that our youngest community members are having in preschool, grade school and beyond, we felt a call to be involved in meeting the educational needs of young children and families. Through the Ministry Village ELC, we have the opportunity to reach local families and help lay a solid early learning foundation that will better serve our children and our entire community far into the future of Northwest Florida.”

The dedication service will begin at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, September 23.
