Kidz Life has been providing  childcare to the Bartow area for almost 15 years! We've covered alot of ground along the way, but one thing that never changes is our commitment to providing the highest quality childcare at the lowest price.

Our Story

      The YMCA in Lakeland rented Bartow First Assembly’s gym for their summer program in 2004. The children’s pastor, Terry Gasperson, had the idea that the church could have their own summer program and after-school care program. After meeting with the Pastor, it was decided that Bartow First Assembly would accept this proposal. Consequently, Kidz Life was birthed! Kidz Life at Bartow First Assembly of God began on August 4, 2004, with Grades K – 5. Pastor Paul Kongable is now the Director and we currently have 78 students and 7 staff members. We are excited about the growth we are experiencing and we cannot wait for you to join us!
