First Baptist Preschool And Af

  • We seek to provide a Christian learning center that strives to enhance the growth of children in all aspects of their development: intellectual, emotional, social, physical and spiritual.
  • First Baptist Preschool/Afterschool Program seeks to reflect the Christian faith in all areas of its operation.
  • We consider it a ministry of our church for our community.
  • It is our intention that this ministry reflect our Lord Jesus Christ and his teachings in our care for children and support for parents.
  • Our love for children and our desire to see them grow and mature into the persons God intended them to be forms the foundation of this ministry.
  • We believe effective education includes developmentally appropriate learning activities and stories that teach love of God, love of neighbor, respect for others, and the full development of all the gifts God has given to each child.
  • We endorse a developmentally appropriate approach to early childhood education.
  • This approach is child-oriented rather than content-oriented with the primary focus being upon the environment where the learning actually takes place.
  • Our classrooms are organized by interest areas where children are allowed free choice and child-initiated play.
  • In fact, First Baptist preschool children happily say that they ''play'' all day, but much teacher preparation precedes their play experiences.
  • Less focus is given to ''teaching'' and more to ''facilitating'' learning.
  • Children are encouraged to grow socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually.
