First Baptist Playschool is a ministry of First Baptist Hanford. We are a Christian preschool providing each child a pleasant and loving atmosphere in which to grow day by day in awareness of God’s love. We believe that each child is a very special gift from God and that He created each child as an individual with his/her own unique personality. We celebrate that individuality here at First Baptist Playschool, as well as nurturing each child’s natural creativity and desire to learn.
All activities at First Baptist Playschool are developmentally appropriate for 3 and 4 year old children. We call our school a “playschool” because young children develop many important skills through play. After all, ‘play’ is a young child’s work. It is a fun and exciting experience in a supportive Christian environment. The daily schedule for the children includes free playtime, activity centers, music, stories, snack, outdoor play and Bible stories. We also take annual field trips to a pumpkin patch, the fire station, the library, a goat dairy, and a cow dairy.
The First Baptist Playschool operates from early September through May each year and operates in two sessions. There is a Preschool class for children age 3, and a Pre-kindergarten class for children age 4. The Preschool class sessions meet on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Children must be 3 years old by September 1st of the current school year. The Pre-kindergarten class meets Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Children must be 4 years old by September 1st of the current school year.
