Central Baptist Kindergarten and Preschool


Philosophy of Education

We believe comprehensive preschool education should be age appropriate and based on solid child development principles.  It should address the child's development in the following areas:

  • Social
  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Cognitive
  • Spiritual

In our setting, the preschooler will have a stable environment and the opportunity to:

  • Learn to work and play with others
  • Development large and small muscle dexterity
  • Receive stimulation for creative mental development
  • Learn to deal acceptably with emotions
  • Develop an understanding of God, Christ, loving, sharing, and other Christian values

We believe play should be the primary medium for a preschooler's learning.  The preschool provides a group setting with which the child can feel secure and separate easily from parents.

The teacher/child ration should be set low so teachers have the opportunity to observe play and creative expression, and there should be a balance between child-selection and teacher-guided activities.

Our preschool provides an opportunity for one-to-one experiences between teacher and child and fosters the development of string peer group friendships.  We believe that each child developments at his/her own pace and should be treated as an individual.
