Preschool

Why the name “First Steps”?

2 Timothy 3:15 says, “And how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” The First Steps Preschool Ministry is here to partner with you, to build a spiritual foundation in your child’s life. Children from 6 weeks old through Pre-K will experience age appropriate Bible teaching from experienced teachers who love preschoolers. Parents can attend a Connect Group and the worship service with peace of mind while their little ones are cared for in a very safe and secure environment.
 

Safety and security

This is a priority for our children at First Baptist Middleburg. We have put the following special features in place to protect your preschooler.
  • Our teachers are screened through interviews and nationwide background checks.
  • The hallway leading into the preschool ministry is protected by an electronic door.
  • Security cameras are located in many locations throughout the building.

Sunday Activities

CONNECT GROUPS
Preschool Connect Groups meet at 9:20 & 10:40 a.m. and allow children to learn about God through age appropriate, fun teaching activities. Preschoolers may stay for both hours.
 
J.A.M. TIME
Children from two to four-years-old take part in this power-packed praise and worship time we call J.A.M. Time (Jesus and Me) at 10:40 a.m. During this time the kids enjoy music, Bible time, and puppets. It is a place where preschoolers learn how to praise the God who loves them.
 
SUNDAY EVENINGS Once a month there is a Sunday Evening service at 6:00 p.m. Childcare is provided in the Children’s Building.
OUR CHILDCARE STAFF PROVIDES CARE FOR PRESCHOOLERS FROM 6 WEEKS THROUGH PRE-K.

Cubbies is the AWANA program for children in pre-K.
