Preschool - Program Overview

Green Acres Baptist Church Weekday Preschool is an extension of the ministry of Green Acres Baptist Church into the community.  Green Acres Baptist Church was established in 1958 and the Nursery School began in 1969.  Our purpose is to provide opportunities for children to grow mentally, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.  Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, and loving Christian environment to educate children and support families in the important task of child rearing.

It is our goal to provide your child with a quality Christian experience that will meet his/her individual needs.  We consider it a privilege to be a part in your child’s development.  We recognize our role in serving both out children and their families in ways that will honor God.

The staff strives to teach to teach the values of the Christian faith to children through guided conversation, spontaneous teachable moments, Bible stories and songs.  The teachers pray with the children and model Christian attitudes and outlooks in their classroom activities.


Curriculum

We view learning as an interactive process and believe that children acquire knowledge through active exploration.  We also believe in incorporating a spirit of cooperation as well as developing a positive attitude toward education.  We use the Georgia Pre-K standards as a guide for our teachers.  Learning is centered around themed units that incorporate each of the standards.  We also incorporate Bible stories, thoughts and songs that will supplement the themes that are taught.
