What Makes Preschool Wednesdays Unique
We call our Wednesday nights Music and Missions. Our preschoolers get 45 minutes of music time (choir) and then 45 minutes of missions time. All lessons are age appropriate. This special time gives kids the opportunity to sing worship songs and learn about real-life missionaries carrying the Gospel to all parts of the world.
We start at 5:45 p.m. and end at 7:15 p.m. We encourage children to participate in both the music and missions portions, but if you cannot do both, that's fine! Choir stops and missions begins at 6:30 p.m.
what we teach
Our choir classes are usually taught by volunteers who have gifts in music and singing. The FBC Worship Ministry assists in providing music perfect for your child's age. You also get the opportunity to hear your child sing in two yearly programs (Christmas and spring).
For our missions portion, we use a curriculum called Mission Friends. FBC Prattville is one of the only local churches using this material to teach a basic awareness of God's love for all people.
Our teachers WANT to be here. They love kids, and love teaching children the Word! We have high standards for our teachers, and we realize the responsibility we have when caring for your child. Therefore, all teachers (and volunteers) are screened through Ministry Safe, giving us background checks on those who work with our kids. This program also provides training that we require all teachers to complete.
Also, we have paid childcare staff for our babies through two year olds. This gives our littlest ones consistent, familiar faces each week.
We are sensitive to all dietary and medical needs. It's important that you let us know exactly what your child will need. We want you and your child to feel comfortable during this time, so please, let us know how we can assist. If you'd like to discuss this prior to coming, feel free to contact Julie Parmer, our preschool director.
The classrooms are set up for your child to explore, play and learn. You'll find appropriate tables, chairs, and toys. Keeping our rooms clean and safe are also important to us.
