Mission Statement & Goals

The mission of First Baptist Church’s Sonshine Preschool is to bring glory to God through:

Providing a quality early childhood education in a loving and nurturing environment that prepares each student to function successfully in school and throughout life in a diverse society. 

The goals of Sonshine Preschool are to:

1) create a Christ-centered environment and encourage a healthy relationship with Jesus 

2) help establish positive relationships between preschool children, their families, the community and First Baptist Church 

3) promote a secure and caring environment which will enhance the physical, academic, social and emotional development of preschool children

4) prepare children for future learning and growth.



Sonshine Preschool provides quality early childhood education.  Our focus is to teach 3 – 5 year-olds preschool skills in a nurturing and developmentally enriching environment.  We balance academic skills with play and fun activities to teach children pre-reading, science, math and develop social/emotional skills.  We are Christian-based and family-focused, offering optional care programs to support families in the community.
