The philosophy of Kid’s @ First Learning Center is to extend the ministry of First Baptist Madison by providing an environment that encourages the educational and spiritual development of children enrolled in the program. We want to help parents plant seeds of faith into the life of each child and then watch God grow them in faith.
A planned curriculum is offered for all ages, six weeks through grade five. Our curriculum seeks to develop the total child. It includes activities that provide for individual differences, first-hand experiences, and activities that enhance self-concept. Our goal is to provide each child with adequate stimulation for physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual growth. Most importantly, this program does incorporate a curriculum that enables a child to become himself - the person God intended that child to be.
Lifeway’s Weekday Early Education (WEE Learn) provides a Biblically-based guide for our 2-year olds. Activity centers and multi-sensory experiences provide opportunities to be introduced to the alphabet, counting, shapes, and colors. A daily review of days of the week & months of the year is included in group time.
Our 3 and 4-year olds use the Big Picture Interactive Bible featuring the Gospel Project for Kids to learn about God’s Word. Biblically sound teaching is important during the early years of developing values & a moral awareness. The teaching curriculum Learning Without Tears focuses on playful learning to develop coloring, drawing, counting, building, and handwriting readiness for Kindergarten. Each student will have a workbook which he will complete during the year & take home in May.
