Immanuel Preschool is a ministry of Immanuel Baptist Church, Paducah, KY, which operates as a weekday paid tuition program. We presently offer classes for two, three, four, and five-year old children. Classes are offered to meet the needs of families living in our community as well as families of Immanuel Baptist Church.
"Train children in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it."
We believe that God is the designer of how people grow and develop. God's design for young children is in a sequential manner with predictable stages of development. We recognize that each child is unique and valuable. To respect the nature of the child and the progression of development is to respect God's dynamic creation. It is our goal to provide helps and challenges in this growing process through a balanced and well planned program. Our daily schedule consists of "hands on" learning while participating in individual, small group, and large group activities. It is our intention to nurture the development of the whole child by focusing on spiritual, physical, emotional, social or cognitive growth. As Christian teachers, it is our desire to provide a loving and positive environment involving God and His principles of life.
Our Approach: The Way You Go About It Matters
Our classrooms are organized by learning centers and we plan for a balance of child-directed and teacher-directed activities.
Our goal is introduce children to appropriate social skills, cognitive skills, language development, fine and gross motor skills, pre-reading skills, pre-math skills, science activities, art activities, home living/dramatic play, blocks and puzzles, manipulatives, and music.
We are licensed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Our preschool program includes hands-on learning, small intimate classes, at least two teachers per class, an outdoor discovery area, an indoor gym, parent-teacher conferences, weekly class diaries, monthly newsletter, Preschool Family Picnic, and a happy & safe environment. Our calendar is based on the Paducah City Schools calendar.
