Welcome to Planting Seeds of Hope Children Center!  Our mission is to love and accept all children and their families and disciple them in the way of Jesus Christ by engaging them in a creative ministry that provides a safe and enriching place of care and learning. 

Planting Seeds of Hope Children's Center was established in 2003, as a ministry of the First Baptist Church of Massillon,  to provide quality Christian care for children 6 weeks-12 years of age.  The staff recognizes the importance of balanced growth so they provide opportunities for mental, physical and emotional growth through a variety of creative experiences.  Children are encouraged to learn and explore at their own speed in areas that interest them.  We believe all children are greatly influenced in their early years.  Thus, it is vital to provide young children with a safe and loving environment where learning is hands-on and appropriate for their current stage of development. 

Planting Seeds of Hope Children's Center is licensed by the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services , and participates in the Step Up to Quality Program.
