Who We Are
Based on Psalm 127:3, TBCWEA believes that all children are gifts from God and that God has a plan and purpose for each one. (Jeremiah 29:11). We believe that young children grow, learn, and thrive best through loving, nurturing relationships in an active, engaging, play-based educational environment. In addition, young children deserve the right to experience God and His world through spending time outdoors.
The Mission of TBCWEA is to provide early childhood educators with affordable, relevant, and researched-based training and resources that support their endeavor to teach young children age-appropriate physical, cognitive, social, emotional and spiritual concepts with a Biblical focus.
What We Do
TBCWE provides a variety of resources and training opportunities, support and encouragement to faith-based early education programs and others in the early education arena. All of our conferences and online courses meet or exceed the requirements for annual Texas Child Care Licensing training hours.
Why We Do It
We have a unique opportunity and responsibility to meet the developmental needs of young children and provide support for their parents. We are in a position to have a huge impact on the emotional, spiritual, and educational growth of the children in our care while we also minister to their entire family. We want to equip and encourage those who are on the frontlines of childcare and early education to be effective each day. The work we are doing will have eternal rewards as we plant the seeds of the Gospel into the hearts of young children and their parents.
But Jesus called the children to him and said “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Luke 18:16, Mark 10:14, Matthew 19:14)
How We Do It
We provide high-quality resources and training for all early childhood educators and advocates. All of our training is relevant and research-based and presented with a biblical worldview.

Respect for Childhood

Trust in children as participants in their own learning should guide experiences and activities that meet their developmental needs and lay important foundations for future learning.
Intentionality in Teaching Biblical Concepts
Faith-based early educators have a responsibility to teach young children from birth about their Creator and all that He has made for them to enjoy. Each child deserves to know that God who loves him/her unconditionally.
Inspiration and Encouragement
Teaching and taking care of young children can be exhausting and often overlooked work. We desire to encourage and support early childhood educators by building a unique community of professionals via virtual and in-person networks.
