St. Matthews Baptist Weekday Preschool and Parents Day Out has been a part of the ministry of St. Matthews Baptist Church for many years. We love preschoolers and their families. There is a real sense of care and community at this church and school. We strive to meet the needs of the whole child and provide a happy environment in which each child can grow.

Philosophy of Education

We believe that St. Matthews Baptist Weekday Preschool and Parents Day Out shall provide a happy environment in which the child may grow …

Physically – We help each child participate in a variety of motor activities to improve muscular coordination and fine motor skills. We establish desirable health habits and teach the child to know and follow the simple rules of safety.

Socially – Children learn through play. They learn to share and work together. We encourage them to respect personal and property rights of others. We aim to develop attitudes of kindness, cooperation, courtesy, and helpfulness towards others. We expect children to accept appropriate individual and social responsibility in their groups; we believe this to be essential in establishing relationships with peers and adults.

Mentally – We feel children have the right to be children, and we will not push them into areas and experiences for which they are not ready. At the same time, we want children to stretch their thought processes and their imaginations. We try to broaden their range of interests, and help them grow in their ability to concentrate. We urge them to express themselves through language, music, and art experiences. We encourage the development of listening skills.

Emotionally – We keep our classes small so we can know each child. We try to understand the needs of each child and help them grow in self-confidence as they learn to become more independent. Any information you can offer your child’s teacher will be helpful and appreciated.

Spiritually – Our goal is for each child in our program to grow in the knowledge of God and God’s love. We model God’s love in our actions with other people, and we teach about God through Bible stories and prayer.
