“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.
