Highlands First Baptist Child Care
Where learning is fun! Call or come by today. We would love to meet your family.
The purpose of our center is to extend the ministry of and help accomplish the purpose of First Baptist Church by providing care, education and development of each child enrolled to his/her potential-spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially. This is to be accomplished by providing developmentally appropriate activities and guidance and by providing a program of ministry and outreach to the families enrolled.
Weekday Education Program
First Baptist Child Care Center was started in January 1973, and licensed by the State of Texas. Our program is designed for children 2 years-5 years and school age children grades K-5 with the purpose of developing the whole child. The center is governed by a church appointed committee and administered by the director. Each member of the staff possesses the competency, understanding essential in teaching children. Staff also meet the training requirements set by the State of Texas. Each staff member is certified in CPR and First Aid. Our child/staff ratio is low for the safety of the children.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program is for students who are 4 before September 1st. It is a structured, fun learning environment where each child can explore, create, and develop from the inside out. Pre-K hours are from 8:30-11:30, Monday-Friday. We offer extended care through our child care center.
Our classes are open to any child regardless of race or religious beliefs. The curriculum is appropriately designed for the age groups and the development of each individual child. We believe that a child absorbs his concept of God form people, things and experiences that are a part of his/her environment. Thus, a love and appreciation for God, Christ, and the things God has made are stressed through appropriate activities. We use the Church Weekday Early Education curriculum, (W.E.E.) and many other resources to accomplish our goals.
Your child will participate in a variety of activities such as:
- Working with paints, clay, crayon, blocks, and other manipulative materials
- Making short excursions to points of interest in the community
- Enjoying stories, poetry, dramatization, films, books, chapel, and Bible stories
- Learning to share, taking turns, planning, working, and playing with others
- Acquiring good health and cleanliness habits
- Learning to respond rhythmically to music, singing new songs, and listening to different kinds of music
We hope your child's experiences here will be happy, wholesome ones. As parents you are invited to visit us, ask questions, and make suggestions. The best assurance for the success of your child's experiences is the close cooperation and understanding of parents and staff.
