Weekday Early Education

The Weekday Early Education Ministry of Whitesburg Baptist Church has provided a caring and loving environment for children since January of 1959. We offer several programs including daycare for infants-6 years, preschool for 3 + 4-year-olds, and Mother’s Day Out (infant-3 years).

Daycare      MDO      Preschool

Goals

The goals of our program are to put the needs of the child first, offer love and security, give opportunities to New Weekday logo 2011 for websucceed each day, use guided “play” to produce learning, develop social skills needed for everyday living, and foster an appreciation of God’s world.

We will strive to help each child feel good about him/her self and the world around them. We want the children to experience God’s love through loving relationships and happy times at school in a Christian environment.

We accept children as they are, allowing them to grow in their own way, at their own pace, according to their individual needs.

Daycare

These full-day classes meet Monday through Friday from 7:00 am- 5:30 pm. The preschool curriculum is included each morning for ages two through six. Children in infant and one-year-old classes are taught as teachers provide love for each child as they meet physical, social and emotional needs throughout the day.
