First Baptist Athens offers a Weekday First School program for 3 & 4 year olds. We have classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Our mission statement is: To extend the mission and ministry of First Baptist Church by providing a biblically based education to preschoolers throughout the week, helping preschoolers develop physically, mentally, spiritually, morally, socially, and emotionally through age-appropriate activities.
We offer a prepared environment that offers, exploration, manipulation of educational manipulatives, repetition, and activities that foster communication and curiosity.
We are a preschool that is mostly based on the High Scope approach to learning, by allowing time for various experiences in the classroom with small groups and large groups. We have independent play in learning centers and in each of these the teacher asks open-ended questions that cause true thinking to take place. Our teachers document, record, and observe a child’s progress to help his or her parents understand their child’s progress. Even clean-up time is a time to learn responsibility and take control of their environment.
We have added to the areas of learning this year. Music education and Sign Language are our new areas of learning. Through Music, our pre-schoolers will be introduced to rhythm, dynamics, and the basic road signs one would encounter in a piece of music. They will learn how each emotion can be expressed through music. Through Sign Language, the preschoolers will learn to speak with their hands. From basic commands to everyday words that will express their thoughts, Sign Language will be used in the classroom by the teacher and the children.
We also place importance on introducing these character traits into our classrooms: gratefulness, honesty, humility, perseverance, responsibility, thoroughness, obedience, and consideration.
Our preschoolers also do community projects that help them learn to give of themselves to others.
All of this, along with science experiments, book fairs, book reports, several types of parent/teacher communication, show and tell, and much more make FBC First School the place to be!

Great things are happening here…We hope you will join us!
