First Baptist Christian Day School was established at First Baptist Church of Springfield in 1964. It served as an outreach then, and it continues to do so today. At that time, the Day School's ministry reached out to a needy community. Like the "Daffodil Principle," FBCDS planted one seed at a time until it grew over the years to be like a great field of daffodils. Many seeds have been planted and nurtured within a thirsty community. The school and its program has grown over the years, and with God's help, as well as the faithful devotion of loving, dedicated supporters and staff members, has existed to feed and nourish a large area in this suburb of Washington, D.C. Now in existence for over 50 years, the school is proud of its large, bright classrooms, maintained playground, a large indoor playground for inclement weather, and loving, caring Christian teachers.
