FBC has a preschool in our Activities Building from 8 to 11 am weekdays, during the school year.

At First Baptist of Benton the curriculum for the K3 and K4 preschool classes endeavors to foster learning in a Christian atmosphere.  All areas of intellectual development, social behavior, emotional balance, physical skills, and Christian values are addressed through a thematic, age appropriate, readiness program.  The children experience formal and informal teaching, teacher directed activities, and free play.

Academic concepts related to the alphabet and numbers are presented through games, activities, stories, and individualized opportunities.  Music, art, dramatic play, science, health and social studies are incorporated into each unit of study.  Socialization is addressed through learning to interact appropriately with their peers and other adults.  Language skills, discrimination, perception skills, and reasoning abilities are also covered.   Bible stories, verses and Christian principles are taught daily.  Each child’s skills are evaluated in the winter and spring and conferences are held with parents to discuss his or her progress.

FBC Preschool Committee

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me. And do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’” We strive to provide a safe, healthy, fun-loving Christian environment that is intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically stimulating for each individual child. We believe this goal is accomplished by using developmentally appropriate practices through child centered and teacher guided play and exploration. We believe that children are a gift from God. Helping them to learn is a divine privilege. We give our best effort to be a positive role model that instills Christian values that will help your child through the journey of life. We use hands-on stories and activities that teach your child the fundamental concepts of the beautiful diverse world God created! There is so much for children to learn, yet so much for them to offer! Come play with us… learn with us… grow with us!
