First Baptist Church Of St. Charles Preschool

FBCSC Preschool has provided a quality, Christian oriented, safe and nurturing environment for preschool age children to learn and grow for 50 years. We are licensed through MSDE and are an EXCELS school. We are one of the few schools in our area that provide small classroom sizes of no more than 10 students to each class. We teach self-regulation and problem sovling techniques along with readiness and academic skills that meet each child's developmental and individual needs. Through the utilization of prayer, bible stories, bible verses and character traits the children develop knowledge of God and Jesus. "Children are a gift from the Lord." Psalm 127:3.

My daughter attended the half day pre-K-4 program. She had a wonderful experience here. The staff provided a structured, caring , nurturing environment. Her social and academic skills improved tremendously. The children attend chapel weekly, which was instrumental in her character development. I would highly recommend enrolling your child here.

I love this place. My grandchild loves this place, his teacher, and his friends. He obtained a firm foundation to ready him for kindergarten, just going a half day Monday to Friday. He also had a lot of fun. I am sad that he has to leave. They are so nurturing.

We loved this school for our twins so much. We attended half day 3 days a week for PreK 3. Surprisingly, half-time was still very beneficial and we watched our twins thrive. The small class sizes are great and the environment is loving and nurturing. Being Christian, we appreciated the attention given to teaching the children about God and the Bible as well. It truly felt like family as they really get to know your child and their family. This preschool is a wonderful option for families unable to attend public school. I really wish this school started at age 2 because we are already looking forward to sending our toddler when she turns 3. Definitely recommend this school.
