The purpose of Merrimon Avenue Baptist Church Preschool is to extend the ministry of the church to support families by providing quality care, biblical education, and growth opportunities for their children and by providing a program of ministry and outreach to the families of the children enrolled.
Because each child develops mentally, physically, spiritually, socially and emotionally, age-appropriate learning experiences are provided to allow each child to progress at his/her own pace and to experience success through hand-on activities in learning centers.
While Merrimon Avenue Baptist Church Preschool's program is not required to meet current North Carolina licensing standards, we will strive to be in compliance voluntarily.
Your child will participate in a variety of learning center activities which include art, books, blocks, puzzles and manipulatives, nature, music and dramatic play. Appropriate field trips are taken in the community, and you will be notified in advance of any field trip. Social skills are developed through sharing, taking turns, thinking, reasoning, and problem solving. Bible stories, thoughts and verses are included in each teaching unit.
