First Baptist Athens offers First School program for 3 & 4 year olds.
We offer classes 3 days a week or 5 days from 8:30 AM to 2:30 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, use 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 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 such as Operation Christmas Child and a canned food drive for rescue ministries that help children learn to give of themselves to others.
All of this, along with science experiments, a BEKA curriculum, Wee Curriculum, several types of parent/teacher communication, show and tell, and much more make FBC First School the place to be!
Our Parents Day Out Program provides quality child-care in a loving Jesus-centered environment where children are encouraged to learn, play, socialize and grow in a secure setting.


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