What We Strive For

Goals

Where teachers are aware of and committed to the standards of the Baptist Education Center; striving to be Godly role models after the example of scripture.

Where a Christian foundation is taught through daily example, bible stories and songs, creative bible crafts and activities as well as weekly chapel.

Where, while children engage in play, they will be provided opportunities for cognitive, emotional, social and physical growth.

That guides and encourages children to respect one another, while demonstrating kindness and friendship. 

That provides for a safe, nurturing environment for the wholesome development of the child.

That sets a tone of cooperation and respect in the classroom and toward one another.

That praises the daily accomplishments of children.

That provides age and developmentally appropriate activities and a variety of learning experiences using time tested early childhood themes.
