Basic Information
 

Gourd Springs Baptist Preschool was established as an outreach to the community to provide a quality early education experience for children ages 3 to 4 years old or through Kindergarten in a warm and friendly environment within a spiritual setting.

Gourd Springs Baptist Preschool admits students of any race, color, national origin or ethnicity to all the privileges, rights, programs and activities provided by this school.

Our school is designed to start the education process of learning to work with others, respect others and their own feelings. Also children will be developing the skills of shapes, sizes, letter and number identification to better prepare them for Kindergarten. Children will do this by learning through song, games, arts and crafts and center rotations.

Each staff member is qualified and competent to provide loving and nurturing care to each child. Our teacher/child ratio is in accordance with state law: twelve or less per teacher. Classes are divided according to each child’s age. All children must be potty trained.
