Philosophy of Ministry

First Baptist Matthews Weekday Preschool seeks to help children experience feelings of love, acceptance, respect of self, and respect of others in a safe and loving environment. Our preschool program is designed to address the needs of the total child. The preschool years lay the foundation that will provide children the knowledge they need as they continue to grow. Our preschool teachers use various types of activities that help the children develop emotionally, mentally, physically, socially and spiritually. Every child is encouraged to develop a creative and inquiring mind through active play and classroom learning.

First Baptist Matthews preschool teachers work from a flexible program which consistently presents new and challenging ideas and activities for the children. Teachers use the WEE LEARN curriculum as a foundation to create innovative and fun daily activities. Teachers enhance the curriculum with weekly themes that allow the children to experience and appreciate God’s created world around them. Bible stories and verses are taught weekly. In addition, children attend Library and Music classes. The 3’s, 4’s, and T-K classes also engage in an age-appropriate handwriting curriculum within their weekly units. Our goals are always to prepare your child for the next year of school.
