First Baptist Christian Day School


Each teacher's goal at First Baptist Christian Day School is to accept the child as an individual and to meet the individual needs of each child in a loving, secure, Christian environment.  We are a "learn through play" school which spends time daily in math and reading readiness but in such a way that your child will not feel pressure to compete or get good grades.
