The Preschool Ministry of FBC ministers to preschoolers, birth through kindergarten and their families, by partnering with parents to lay a strong Biblical foundation during these first crucial years of life.

Because children learn more during their first five years than in any other time in their life, we are committed to train loving Christian people to teach Bible based curriculum through age appropriate activities in a safe learning environment.

Volunteers for Preschool Ministry “fit” this calling by having a nurturing spirit, a willing and committed desire to make a difference, a love for children, a fun and interactive personality, and a great concern for young families from all walks of life.
