FBC has a preschool in our Activities Building on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8 to 11 am during the school year.
At First Baptist of Benton the curriculum for the K3 and K4 preschool classes endeavors to foster learning in a Christian atmosphere. All areas of intellectual development, social behavior, emotional balance, physical skills, and Christian values are addressed through a thematic, age appropriate, readiness program. The children experience formal and informal teaching, teacher directed activities, and free play.
Academic concepts related to the alphabet and numbers are presented through games, activities, stories, and individualized opportunities. Music, art, dramatic play, science, health and social studies are incorporated into each unit of study. Socialization is addressed through learning to interact appropriately with their peers and other adults. Language skills, discrimination, perception skills, and reasoning abilities are also covered. Bible stories, verses and Christian principles are taught daily. Each child’s skills are evaluated in the winter and spring and conferences are held with parents to discuss his or her progress.
