Our preschool was founded by and is a non-profit outreach of Grassy Branch Baptist Church. Our purpose is to provide God’s children with a safe, nurturing, and Christian environment based on developmentally and age appropriate materials and activities. We teach the elements of faith which are common to all Christians. The program is an extension of Grassy Branch’s mission and ministry to our community.
We believe that much of what a preschooler learns is through play. Play is an important way that children expand their social skills, express their creativity, develop language, solve problems, and generally learn about the world. We incorporate teacher-directed, as well as, child-initiated activities. Some of the ways our children learn include learning centers, creative arts, music, group time, and outdoor play.
