Child Care

The Child Care Ministry at First Presbyterian Church has been developed to serve the members of the congregation and the surrounding community. While parents enjoy a break from their parenting responsibilities, children are provided a safe, secure, loving and Christian environment with opportunities to socialize with others of a similar developmental age.

Please take a moment to follow the link and fill out our simple child information form.  This form is also available in the nursery.  We ask that each child has a separate form (siblings not on one form) and that you fill out a new form at the beginning of each school year. 


   Hello! My name is Stacey Erlenwein-Ramirez and I am the Director of Child Care here at FPC.  First, I would like to say it is an absolute honor and privilege to be a part of this amazing church family and to care for your beautiful children.  I was born and raised in South Tampa, and am a 3rd generation graduate of H.B. Plant High School.  My husband and I moved to Saint Petersburg in 2004 and started our family.  We have three energetic boys, Roman 11 who attends 6th grade at Bay Point Middle, Gabriel 10, and Hartly 6, whom attend our beautiful historic North Shore Elementary School.  I was on the PTA board for 4 years and now just a member actively involved in volunteering my {free} time when possible.

   I have always had so much love and patience for little ones and have spent much of my life taking care of children.  With my position here, I will always utilize my childcare skills to plan daily activities.  Watching children grow and learn is very rewarding.  My 3 boys along with my nieces, nephews and other children, inspire me every day.  There’s no greater feeling than the joy I feel when a child is happy and content in the moment, and this is the goal that I always strive for.  I treat all children, big or small, as if they are my own.  Taking care of children is my passion and I feel that my life experiences along the way have helped me become the woman, mom and teacher that I am today.  

   I am very excited to be part of a great team of caregivers that are here for you and your children.  I look forward to making new relationships with you all.  As the director of this beautiful center, my door is always open!  Please let me know what I can do for you and your child.
