Welcome! We are so pleased that you have taken a moment to find out more about the opportunities available at the First Baptist Learning Center.  Our Christian-based preschool and kindergarten classes are accredited through AdvanceED.  The Center's staff recognizes the precious gift of babies and children and takes seriously the responsibility to care for and demonstrate God's love to the families in Madison County.  It is our prayer that it is evident how much we love children and to provide a safe, secure and welcoming environment in which our families can experience God's amazing love.
Please feel free to contact The Learning Center at 859.623.4028, ext. 211 with any questions or come by for a tour of our facilities.  We look forward to meeting you and your family soon.

"He said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.’ And He took the children in His arms, put His hands on them, and blessed them.”                                  Mark 10:14-16  (NIV)

The Learning Center utilizes Bible-based, age-appropriate curriculum in our classrooms.  Our purpose is to provide a safe environment that promotes the healthy, age-appropriate, development of the whole child. Our program provides various hands-on, child-centered, experiences that guide and encourage cognitive, motor, social, emotional and spiritual growth. With the knowledge and understanding that children progress at different rates we encourage an individualized approach to classroom activities and structure. In addition, the ministry of the church is extended through the Learning Center in order to strengthen and provide support to the family as a unit.
The Learning Center is governed by the First Baptist Church (FBC) Learning Center Council which consists of the Learning Center Program Director, Preschool/Children Ministry Director, one Learning Center Teacher, one Learning Center parent and nine FBC church members.  The Council meets periodically to discuss and evaluate the center's needs, review progress of set goals, and assist the ministry by guidance and support to teachers and parents.
