At First Baptist Preschool and Kindergarten children and their families come first. We make it our personal goal to serve our children with the upmost care, nurturing, and quality education.


First Baptist Preschool and Kindergarten - 

"To learn, to laugh, and to feel loved."




Sherie Brown

Mother of two First Baptist boys:

"It is with a grateful heart that I write this letter in recommendation of the exceptional service my family has received fom the First Baptist After School Program. My boys were received with open arms. They have built friendships that will last beyond our time in the Oak Park community and for that we are grateful. I, as a mother, am most moved by the loving care with which my children have been treated. Being that I maintained a consistent travel schedule during the boys' time at First Baptist, it was a great comfort to know that they were being loved and cared for. The supportive staff made me feel so much more at ease through encouraging workds, homework help, and activities with the boys: FUN activities and always a welcoming smile. 


There are not enough words to expres my sincere appreciation for the staff and faculty of First Baptist After School Program."



Cloe Lewis

Mother of one First Baptist child in the 123 Seseme Street Room:

"I am so happy that I found First Baptist Preschool and Kindergarten! I love the positive, uplifting environment; you can see and feel the love that the staff has for the children. I never thought I could feel so comfortable dropping my baby girl off to be cared for by people who are not family, but the staff has made me and my daughter feel at home. My daughter absolutely loves going to school and she does not want to leave at the end of the day! I am extremely grateful for the staff at First Baptist Preschool and Kindergarten.


Thank You All!"



Sean Bryant

Father of one First Baptist girl in the Rainbow Room:

"First Baptist has been great. My daughter looks forward to coming to school every day. She loves her teachers and they have always been very helpful and caring. I look forward to her continuing her education with First Baptist.


I come to pick her up and she doesn't want to leave because she's having too much fun!"

Ken Johnson

The staff treats my daughters as their own: aka spoils them!"



Kim Smith

"First Baptist is more like a family environment than the traditional daycare setting.


The staff really does go the extra mile so that the homework is not only done, but that the children understand it."

The teachers are very caring and consistant with the kids."
