Preschool Learning Center

We know choosing the best childcare and preschool for your family is an important decision. For more than 40 years, families like yours have chosen our center for its excellence in care, preschool curriculum and Christian education. The cornerstone of our program is a loving, faithful staff of teachers and caregivers to better meet the needs of working parents and their children.

The purpose of the Preschool Learning Center is to provide a loving and secure environment for children while assisting parents in their responsibility of leading their children to be morally responsible and Biblically responsive. It is our mission to nurture the whole child physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. From 6 weeks of age until pre-K, children are exposed to Christian values and hands-on learning, with the ultimate goal of preparing your child for kindergarten and future success

CURRICULUM
The curriculum is developed around themes that provide opportunities for children to learn about God’s world and how to live in it. Activities, which embrace physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual development, are included in each theme topic. Themes are designed to help lay a foundation for understanding God, Jesus, Bible, church, self, family, others, and the natural world. Activities in each unit help children develop language, reading, writing, and math skills appropriate to his or her stage of development.

Wee Learn is a developmentally appropriate curriculum that is used in every classroom from our infants to our Pre-K Fours. Wee Learn is an approved curriculum with the Early Learning Coalition of Broward County, Inc. Along with Wee Learn, the Pre-K four classes use the Florida Standards of Achievement for Kindergarten. We introduce phonemic awareness in our Pre-K three and four year old classes. We also use the Florida Sunshine Guide Lines for Kindergarten as well as Broward County Guide Lines.

Our primary goal is to lay a foundation of who God is and how much He loves us. We teach that Jesus is the Son of God, how He lived, and that we are striving to be like Him. To achieve this goal, we read a Bible verse each day and include age-appropriate Scripture memorization in our Wee Learn Curriculum.

Chapel

Once each week, children attend a Chapel service, Bible Lessons are presented, teaching the joy of worship and prayer along with, songs and other related activities.

Physical Fitness

A purposeful program of movement and exercise is critical in the development of your child. Not only does it enhance motor abilities, it also helps in academic and other areas that go far beyond the playground. Our Fitness Instructor offers children non-stop fun with special physical activities, games and music all geared to develop coordination and beginner skills.

Library

Each week your child’s imagination and love for reading will grow as our Library Time storyteller reads a wide variety of children’s books. Children are given the opportunity to learn new vocabulary words, discuss books and anticipate story outcome. Respect and care for books are taught each week.

In House Field Trips

First Baptist Preschool Learning Center promotes community awareness through special programs for children enrolled in the three and four year old programs. Throughout the year special events will be offered.

Ceremonies

To further develop your child’s confidence and self-esteem, children participate in several musical performances where parents are invited to attend. Of course, our annual Christmas pageant, which stars our three and four year olds, is one of the most anticipated performances each year! Finally, when the big day arrives and your child completes our preschool, you and your family can look forward to our annual “cap and gown” graduation.
