FBC Christian Preschool

For over twelve years our mission has been to offer excellence in preschool education for children in our community while providing a loving, Christ-centered environment that fosters the whole child in every area of development. The FBC Christian Preschool is a ministry of our church and is located at our Activities Center.

We offer a half-day Christian early education program for toddlers, twos, threes and four-year-old’s. By allowing each child to develop at their own rate as an individual the activities that they participate in foster development of self-esteem and independence while also encouraging creativity and curiosity in a loving and nurturing Christian environment. These characteristics are the foundation for intellectual, spiritual, social, emotional and physical growth.
