Welcome to Preschool!
The Preschool Program began in the fall of 1977. The program is accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission for academic standards. There is a staff of 12 teachers and 4 para-professionals. Because of our accreditation standards, the program follows Columbia County’s school calendar and does meet 180 school days. The program, which meets from 9:00 to 1:00, consists of K3, K4, and K5 classes (3, 4, and 5 year olds).
The Weekday Education program was Metro Augusta Parent’s Pick for the area’s best preschool, stating, “Your children couldn’t be in better hands.” They continued by writing, “Metro Augusta Parent readers don’t easily trust their children to other people’s care, but there’s something about the reassuring face of Patti Fowler, minister of weekday education at First Baptist Church in Augusta, that lets parents know that their little one’s will be OK in her care.”
Mother's Day Out
This program meets from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday through Friday. Infants and Toddlers may choose two of the five days of the week, and 2 year olds may attend up to five days a week. MDO for 3 year olds is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays only.
Meet Mrs. Patti
We seek to provide daily opportunities for the children to grow in age appropriate developmental skills — physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.
