Welcome to First Baptist Preschool!


We at First Baptist believe that children develop skills best through play which is why our learning and teaching philosophy is “Learn Through Play”. It is through active exploration that children learn the most and while they are “playing” the teaching opportunities are endless.

From our parents

“All 5 of our children attended FB! They all gave back and volunteered or worked there! Wonderful family environment.”

I loved this school so much when my son attended that I wanted to be part of the team.”

“I highly recommend Wee Play for kids from crawlers to toddlers. I’ve been going for months off and on with my 2 kids and both absolutely love it, from the obstacle course to the instruments, bubbles, and parachute. Ms. Sheila is great with the kids and keeps them engaged and learning while having so much fun. Classes are reasonably priced compared to other Mommy and me classes in the area.”

“This is a hidden gem of Somerset County. We’ve been going for a few years and my son just loves going to see Mugsy (the puppy mascot) and play on all of the equipment! There’s songs, a musical instrument, all kinds of equipment/slides/mats to play on, bubbles and parachute time. Ms. Sheila is wonderful with the kids and very welcoming! Highly recommend!”
