The purpose of the weekday preschool ministry at FBC is to minister to the spiritual and social needs of preschool children and their families from Jackson, and surrounding communities, while providing a strong academic foundation. We are committed to providing biblically based, age-appropriate experiences to allow each child to develop mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally at his/her own level of ability while enjoying feelings of success.
Your child will participate in a variety of learning center activities which include art, books, blocks, puzzles and manipulatives, nature, music and dramatic play. Social skills are developed through sharing, taking turns, thinking, reasoning, and solving problems. Bible stories, thoughts and verses are included in each lesson.
