Registration is OPEN for the 2020-2021 school year! See information below!

“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.

Meet the Staff

Front Row (L to R): Mary Beth Kennedy, Kristy Rinaca, and Keri Burroughs

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

Even though we are in uncertain times with COVID-19, registration remains OPEN for the 2020-2021 school year. We ask that you mail your Registration Form in to our office along with the non-refundable $115 registration fee instead of dropping it off at this time. All classes are filled on a first come, first serve basis. As classes are filled, a waiting list will be formed. If you have any questions regarding our program, the classes we offer, and enrollment availability, please contact Elizabeth Franklin at 864-984-7500 or by email at elizabeth@fbclaurens.org.

Dates to Remember

Our “Pick-Up” day for students’ belongings is scheduled for Friday, May 1 from 12pm – 1pm. While we are currently under a “shelter in place” Order issued by the Governor of South Carolina, we will reschedule again if this has not been lifted by that time. We apologize for this inconvenience, but certainly want to do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19.
