Introducing Pre-kindergarten 3

 
Second Baptist School is pleased to announce the addition of a pre-kindergarten program for three-year-old children beginning fall 2019.

The early childhood program at Second Baptist School has been preparing students for our lower school for more than 70 years. Building on that tradition, our Pre-kindergarten 3 program will provide children with a safe, loving environment where ability and creativity can flourish!

Please join us for one of these informational meetings to learn more.

Friday, October 19 | 9 - 10 a.m.
Woodway Village - Room 108

Friday, October 26 | 9 - 10 a.m.
Woodway Village - Room 108

At the informational meeting, you will learn our goals for the program, along with the daily schedule, which includes nap/rest time, curriculum, carpool drop off/pick-up, parent conferences, class parties, toilet training requirements and more.

We look forward to partnering with you as your children take these first small steps of their academic career. The admission timeline and steps can be found by visiting secondbaptistschool.org/apply. If you have questions, please let us know by emailing admissions@secondbaptistschool.org.

I am excited to share this vision with you!
