First Baptist Academy is a faith based childcare facility licensed by the State of Texas. Our Primary School programs include Early Childhood (Infants-Twos) and PreKindergarten (PreK3 & PreK4).
Children are welcomed into a structured and loving atmosphere, where they flourish and grow. To support this familial atmosphere, we are committed to maintaining a teacher-to-student ratio lower than state requirements. Our play-based learning environment focuses on developmentally appropriate academics, Bible lessons, daily enrichment classes and interactive play.
First Baptist Academy’s Infants through Twos' classes utilize a fun and innovative, play-based, themed curriculum. Mother Goose Time is a nationally recognized Christian curriculum that nurtures the child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth. Young children learn and develop through play which is incorporated into our daily activities. Age-appropriate enrichment classes include Music and Movement for Infants and Toddlers and Stretch and Grow for Twos.
PreK3 and PreK4 classrooms utilize the Get Set for School by Learning Without Tears curriculum. This curriculum fully integrates early learning disciplines, developmental domains, and social/emotional learning into thematic units that are exciting and relatable to the children. In PreK3, the focus is on recognizing and writing capital letters, learning the sounds those letters make, and learning how to write their names in capital letters. In PreK4, students add-on lower case letters and sounds and learn to write their names in title case.
On a weekly basis, PreK3 and PreK4 students participate in enrichment classes such as art, music, Spanish, technology, and library. Students also have a weekly Chapel time where they worship God through singing and listening to a short Bible lesson.
PreK3 students attend a gross motor skills class once a week, and PreK4 students attend a physical education class once a week. During the extended day program, students have the opportunity to continue developing those gross motor skills through extracurricular programs like soccer, dance, tumbling, Taekwondo, and music and movement.
