First Baptist Church offers a preschool for children ages 2-5.
In the First Baptist Preschool program each child is regarded as God’s special creature. Each will be loved as the unique individual he/she is. Curriculum is a well-balanced enrichment program designed to help each child understand his/her relationship with our loving heavenly Father and to experience God’s presence in each day of life. Teachers encourage and support children as they build readiness skills for future academic learning and increase competence and independence. Children will be guided into positive social interactions that stress Christian values.
Preschool is the initial step in enlarging the child’s world. The atmosphere of the program reflects God’s love expressed through music, prayer, conversation, movement and scripture. In this environment each child is encouraged to grow into the unique person God has created him or her to be.
Two year olds learn through their own experience, trial and error, repetition and imitation. Adults guide and encourage this be ensuring that the environment is safe and supportive.
Three year olds learn through organized play. The children will receive a lot of love and encouragement as they try new things.
The Fours program is designed to enhance motor skills and social skills to provide a natural flow into the Pre-kindergarten program the following year.
The Pre-kindergarten program has been created to provide a gentle transition to kindergarten and to enhance rather than duplicate that experience.
