Overview of FBCSC Preschool & Curriculum
 

The First Baptist Church of St. Charles Preschool Center’s primary purpose is to provide a quality, safe, Christian environment that stimulates each child’s learning in all areas of development. Our established program has been part of the St. Charles and Waldorf community for over 45 years. We are licensed under the Maryland State Department of Education and an EXCELS school. Our small class sizes help students to form a close classroom “Family” and give teachers more one-on-one time to work with the children at the readiness level they are at.  

 The environment and the curriculum we use promote spiritual, physical, emotional, cognitive, and language development.  The Preschool Center provides a safe and stimulating place that caters to each child’s developmental and individual needs.  We promote independence so that the child will be able to accomplish skills without assistance from adults.

 We believe children are active learners.  They learn through trial and error as they engage in new, as well as familiar, explorations.  We understand that play is an important aspect of every child’s development.  During play, they learn lifelong skills in social, cognitive, emotional, physical, and creative development.  At our Preschool Center, learning is regarded as a process rather than a collection of facts.  The concepts, knowledge, and skills that children learn in their early years provide the foundation upon which subsequent learning is based. They are provided with plenty of hands on learning opportunities along with in-house and outside field trips.

 

Children are accepted as the individuals they are and not who the caregivers want them to be.  The teacher will put the child’s needs first and use his/her strengths and abilities as a foundation for learning experiences.  We listen to, and respect, each child as an individual. We teach problem solving, biblical character traits and self-regulation techniques to help support each child’s social-emotional health.

Activity Time

The child chooses activities such as puzzles, blocks, books, art, home-living, music, science, sensory, manipulative toys, etc.

 

Group Experiences

A time of planning, sharing, listening, and discovering together in the areas of music, math, reading and phonics, science, social studies, and spiritual enrichment.

 

Individual Teaching

Each day the teacher will have an opportunity to work  with the children, one-on-one or in small groups and at the child’s readiness level. Teachers set monthly goals for each child.

 

Outdoor /Gross Motor Play

Organized group games and free play help children develop large motor skills and self-confidence. Indoor gross motor play is available in bad weather.

 

Readiness Activities

These activities are designed to meet individual needs in the areas of reading and math readiness, visual and motor experiences, and language development. Hand Writing Without Tears is used. We provide curriculum for science, social studies, religion, math, phonics and vocabulary.

 

Chapel and Music

Parents and siblings are invited to our weekly Chapel time which includes Bible Stories,  learning monthly Character Traits and singing. We also have music time in the classroom .
