Kindergarten

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
— Proverbs 22:6

Mission Statement

The mission of Laurens First Baptist Church Kindergarten is to provide a Christian environment that focuses on the developmental progress of each unique child and encourages discovery in a classroom rich with play, language, math and science concepts.

Curriculum Goals

We strive to help each child grow spiritually, mentally, socially, physically and emotionally in a caring Christian environment.  Teachers use a variety of resources for lesson planning that are designed to be appropriate for the age level being taught.  Children are encouraged to interact with the classroom environment through home living, blocks, art, music, language, math, science and manipulatives. Our staff works hard to make sure that the foundations are in place to give children skills needed as more challenging and difficult work presents itself. Specific goals for each age are included with registration forms.

Chapel

is lead by the ministerial staff and includes Bible lessons and music that relate to everyday life and help the children in their spiritual growth.

Music

classes help children learn about rhythm, beat, instruments, and music basics through a variety of songs including ones that go with our monthly Bible verses.

Physical Education classes

focus on large motor skills, balance and coordination through fun.  Children like to move and need to move!

Registration

Registration remains open for the 2017-2018 school year.  Many classes are full but we do have a few openings.  Contact Elizabeth Franklin with any questions about registering your child.
