Preschool and Kindergarten
"...we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done."
Our purpose at First Baptist Preschool and Kindergarten is to provide a caring environment for your preschool or kindergarten child to experience God's love while pursuing specific social, academic and spiritual goals. It is our desire that each child develop at his own pace and be appreciated for his own unique gifts. We work to provide a strong foundation that will encourage a life-long love of learning and later success in school.
Our curriculum is carefully chosen to provide your child with growth opportunities.
- Kindergarten uses the Scott Foresman Language Arts curriculum, The Wright Skills (phonics) and the Harcourt Math curriculum.
- K-4 uses The Wright Skills (phonics) and Wee Learn published by LifeWay.
- K-3 uses The Complete Early Childhood curriculum by Sobot and Bogan.
Each child attends music class two times a week. Our music teacher provides Christian, curriculum-related, fun through seasonal songs and activities.The children are exposed to many musical concepts.
