2 Year Old Program (Younger & Older)

First Baptist Preschool takes pride in our preschool programs. For over 40 years, we have been leading children in structured play to help them grow and develop. A typical class size is 8-10 children with two teachers. By having smaller class sizes, this allows for better student-teacher interaction. By this stage of development, daily routines become a part of the child’s day and will help promote a sense of stability and security.

As a two-year-old develops their routines, potty-training becomes a more familiar theme. With this in mind, our staff will partner with the parent/s to help reinforce the efforts that are being taken at home in potty training. Please keep in mind that one of the requirements for admittance into the three-year-old program is that the child needs to be 100% potty-trained.

Our curriculum, based on the age level, is from ABeka Book (Nursery through Pre-K material and the Bible curriculum). This curriculum provides us with a base in which we enhance with appropriate supplemental material. Learning Centers are introduced in the older two-year-old classroom and is not limited to but includes: art, blocks, music, reading, and dramatic play. Each child will have the opportunity to participate in these activities. Children learn not only by doing but through play and exploration. New themes are introduced on a bi-monthly basis.

Four Year Old Program

First Baptist Preschool takes pride in our preschool programs. For over 40 years, we have been preparing children for Kindergarten. A typical class size is 10 – 12 children with one teacher. By having a smaller class size, this allows for a better student-teacher ratio and the ability to provide more one-on-one interaction and productive engagement of each child. Activities offered help creatively stimulate your child’s mind to the highest level possible. By partnering with parents, we can help provide a strong spiritual foundation in a loving and caring environment of learning and discovery.

Our teachers outline activities to maximize areas of interests in order to enhance the learning capabilities of each child. One of our objectives is to fine-tune skills that are needed to help children adapt to the Kindergarten setting. Some of these areas include: self-control, listening, following directions, independence, self-confidence, motor skills and cooperation.

Our curriculum, based on the age level, is from the highly rated, nationally recognized, ABeka Book Program (4-year old Kindergarten material and the Bible curriculum). These curriculum’s provide us with a base in which we enhance with appropriate supplemental material. The four-year-old classroom is set up to allow for individual learning and exploration. Learning Centers such as: Math & Manipulatives, Science, art, reading, and computer are just some of the areas each child will have to choose from. Weekly themes are integrated with letters of the alphabet and various activities that will help create a well rounded atmosphere for learning. A more academic approach with the right balance of play, offers our children first-rate preparations for Kindergarten.
