The Mom’s Day Out & Preschool programs at First Baptist Church of Chickamauga exist as a part of FBC’s children’s ministry and, as such, are exempt from state licensure.  The programs share the purpose and values of the children’s ministry which are to work with parents and church leaders to win boys and girls to our Lord, Jesus Christ, and help them grown in Him through Biblically-accurate, Christ-centered teaching; safety; creativity; excellence; and kid-targeted fun.

Our specific goal as a Mom’s Day Out & Preschool program is to provide a safe, Christian environment in which children two to four years old experience spiritual, social, emotional, and educational growth while exploring God’s truths in activities, in word, and in nature.  Embracing the idea that children learn best by experience, we provide specific, age-appropriate times for art, fine and gross motor movement, crafts, music, indoor and outdoor recreation, snack, reading, oral stories, group games, crayon and paper activities, and centers for housekeeping, role play, and manipulatives.  In addition, for the three and four year old programs, a preschool academic curriculum is used.
