Dear Preschool Parent,

We know that the decision as to where your child goes to preschool is an important one. We are delighted that you have chosen First Baptist Academy for your family, and look forward to getting to know each of you better! Your child’s day at First Baptist Academy will be filled with developmentally-appropriate learning in a loving environment, with a focus on kindergarten readiness. We offer a structured learning environment with hands-on activities that correlate with our learning objectives. We call this “learning through play.” We are thankful that you are part of our family this year and we are excited to partner with you in laying the foundations for your child’s education!

The FBA PreK3 and K4 preschool programs use developmentally appropriate curriculum with a Biblical Worldview, and differentiated instruction to meet student needs at their level.

Some activities that they enjoy participating in are pretending in the Housekeeping Center, painting at the easel in the Art Center, building structures in the Block Center and using their fine motor skills with playdough. The children also attend Chapel once a month. They sing songs, listen and participate in Bible lessons, and prayer time.
