First Baptist Church Preschool offers a well-balanced curriculum, using lesson plans and learning centers that are age-appropriate, and designed to allow children to advance at a pace that is comfortable for them. The daily curriculum has been carefully planned to ensure consistency among the classes.
We will use learning centers to actively engage children in the process of learning as well as developing language, intellectual, social-emotional, fine motor, and spiritual skills in every preschooler in our program.
At First Baptist Church Weekday Preschool, we use the Wee Learn curriculum, which is a developmentally appropriate, child-oriented teaching guide. The curriculum is written so that every child can be successful regardless of maturity. We seek to instill in each child a sense of security, initiative, self-esteem and lifetime enthusiasm for learning.
Also included in the rotation is Bible/Chapel time, recess, music, and movement (aka Wiggles & Giggles), and fun science activities and experiments.
Children learn through play. Students will spend time each day outside on our playground or in the gymnasium. Recess play is well supervised and allows the students free time to socialize and make independent play choices.
By experiencing the love and greatness of God, through hearing and discussing bible truths daily, we hope to develop positive attitudes about God, Jesus, and the children themselves. Through teaching about the love of God, we pray that each child, when developmentally ready, can receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Our job is to plant the seeds so that children will bear spiritual fruit in God’s timing.
Wiggles & Giggles
Preschoolers are constantly moving, so we certainly can’t leave out Wiggles & Giggles! Our teachers do a fabulous job of having fun and getting silly with the children through singing and dancing. Children love to get the wiggles out during this exciting part of their day.
As you can see, children spend their day rotating from large group activities, independent seat work, and free center play. The staff here at First Baptist Church Preschool wants to make the most of the time they have with the students. We believe learning should be fun, interactive, and individualized. We want their time with us to be filled with love, friendship, and creativity as we partner with you to train them up in the way they should go.
