STANDARDS

The First Baptist Weekday Education Program operates under the standards of the Alabama Department of Human Resources and is inspected regularly by the Jefferson County Health Department and the Pleasant Grove Fire Department


PHILOSOPHY OF THE PROGRAM

A child develops mentally, physically, socially and emotionally. First Baptist Weekday Education is committed to providing biblical based aged- appropriate experiences to allow each child to progress in these areas at his/her own level of ability while enjoying feelings of success. This is done primarily through hands- on activities in learning centers and positive Christ-like role modeling of the staff


A BEKA CURRICULUM

Over 40 years ago, A Beka Book began with the mission of providing Christian schools with high-quality textbooks and teaching aids. The A Beka Book approach to education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable. The materials reflect sensible theory that is firmly anchored to practicality. Skilled researchers do primary research in every subject. The publications are firm foundations of absolute truth and sound scholarship, and are written by dedicated and talented scholars well grounded in the practical aspects of classroom teaching.
