Our Preschool Philosophy

The Preschool at First Baptist Church of Weddington is a program that operates as a ministry of the church.  Our goal is to provide a Christian environment for preschoolers to learn and grow.  The church sees the Preschool as an outreach to the children, parents, church members and community.

The program is designed to meet the needs of our children.  The children will be offered opportunities to meet a variety of Christian, academic, physical, social, and emotional goals.

We are unashamedly a Christian Preschool.  We firmly believe that each child is a unique creation and gift from God.

Our Schedule

The preschool follows Union County Public School calendar for holidays.  We start our preschool year the day after Labor Day and finish our school year in May.  Our school hours are 9:30 to 1:15 Monday-Thursday.  Children may attend 2,3, or 4 days per week depending on the child’s age.


Our Curriculum

Our bible based curriculum allows the children to participate in center time, circle time, art, music, science and much more.  In this environment, children have the freedom to make choices for creating unique masterpieces of their own.

The Weekday Early Education Curriculum Guide is used as the basis for our IMG_20140227_104525_704teaching curriculum.  Our teachers will enhance this material with other resources.  Our four year old classes use the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum (HWTears.com).  Our Transitional Kindergarten class uses an  A Beka phonics based curriculum and a manuscript based curriculum from Handwriting Without Tears  through the use of journals, writing sheets and much more.  The goal and objectives for our 4 and TK programs are designed to prepare children for kindergarten.  Our program is designed to lay a foundation so that each child may grow in their Christian faith learning about Jesus through prayer, bible stories and play time each day.

IMG_20140303_102844_481Students will attend Chapel once a month in the sanctuary with a pastor.  All classes will attend music each week with our music teacher.  Our 4 and TK students will attend science class each week with our science teacher.  Children will have outside playtime on our playground, weather permitting.  On rainy days we will make arrangements for children to play in other classrooms, playing with balance beams, our parachute, and other activities.
