Genesis Kids Academy

Genesis Kids Academy is a Christian preschool that provides a quality learning environment for infants through preschoolers. Centrally located in Gulf Shores, Genesis Kids Academy is conveniently located for parents who live and work in the towns of South Baldwin County.


As a ministry of Church at the Shores, our mission is threefold.


  • Teach children about God and His love for each of them
  • Give each child a strong foundation in academic preschool skills thus preparing them for success as they enter elementary school
  • Help develop each child’s self-esteem in a safe and nurturing environment

At the same time, we strive to provide families in our community with affordable Christian options for quality child care.  In doing so, a high priority is placed on providing clean spacious rooms, small staff to child ratios, and dedicated, well trained staff members.


The team at Genesis Kids Academy is passionate about giving our students a top notch preschool education. Each day includes preschool academics, and exciting Bible adventures. All students also participate weekly in "Singing and Signing Time." Every structured day includes plenty of play time both indoors in our play center area and outside on our playground.

At Genesis Kids Academy, we truly love our students and their families. We work hard to give them the best possible experience each and every day!
