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.

Registration

Our first day of school at FBC Kindergarten is always the day after Labor Day. 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 availablitiy, please contact our Director, Mary Beth Kennedy, at 984-7500 or by email at kindergarten@fbclaurens.org. Registration for the following school year will always open on February 1st.

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.
