Welcome to Preschool!

The Preschool Program began in the fall of 1977. The program is accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission for academic standards. Because of our accreditation standards, the program follows Columbia County’s school calendar. The program, which meets from 9:00 to 1:00, consists of K3 (3 year olds) and K4 (4 year olds).

Mission Statement

The Preschool program at First Baptist Church of Augusta is organized for children, ages 3-4 years. It is designed to promote the mental, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of children. The program aims to enrich the life of each child so that he/she may experience the best and happiest of preschool years.

The program is a nonprofit ministry of the First Baptist Church and is located on the church campus. The program is under the direction of Martha Kate Hall. It is seen as an integral part of the church’s mission to the community.

The purpose of the Preschool program is to provide a Christian setting for informal teaching experiences, teacher-directed activities and free play. The child’s needs and abilities serve as the focus for the structure of the readiness program. Through the daily schedule and interaction with Christian adults and other children, physical skills will be strengthened, social behavior will be practiced, emotional balance will be sought,  and Christian values will be internalized.

Preschool Curriculum

K3 classes have a theme-based curriculum with stories, music, art, and STEM activities. Bible stories, verses, and a daily prayer are a part of the daily schedule. Teachers help students develop self-help skills and independence.  Teachers also facilitate learning age appropriate social and emotional behavior.  Children are exposed to number, letters, and shapes through hands on activities, games, worksheets, crafts, and group instruction.

K4 classes have a theme-based curriculum with stories, music, art, outside play, and STEM activities. Bible stories, verses, and a daily prayer are a part of the daily schedule.  Letter recognition and the sounds they make are incorporated into related themes. Students also work on writing skilling, reading readiness, math themes and skill, and reviewing colors and shapes. Teachers utilize centers to reinforce concepts and skills. The K4 focuses on preparing students for kindergarten.

Our K3 and K4 are Accredited through the Georgia Accrediting Commission.
