For many of the parents who have their child/children in First Baptist Church of Destin Preschool, we thank you so much for placing your child in our care. And to those who are looking into the possibility of placing your child in our program, we welcome you to come and see our facility and experience the wonderful atmosphere of the preschool program.

We view this as a great honor and a responsibility that we do not take lightly. We look forward to partnering with you in the development of your child.

“Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it”
– Proverbs 22:6

Preschool Philosophy

The preschool seeks to assist families in establishing a strong foundation for spiritual, intellectual, and overall growth. We are committed to promoting and supporting all aspects of a child’s development in an atmosphere of love and respect.

Education Components

Our educational program is based on sound principles of child development for children ages six weeks to four years. The activities are designed to promote independence and foster development in the social/emotional, cognitive and physical domains. In order to meet these goals we use the Abeka Curriculum, incorporating Bible stories, prayer and song. On Wednesdays of each week, we have chapel in the sanctuary.

We have several different programs for early learning. Our full-time program provides care from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm. We also offer before and after school care.

To learn more about the preschool, please contact the director, Maija Campbell, for an appointment:  850-837-7645. 

The office of the First Baptist Church, which is on Sandlewood Court, off of Beach Drive, has a handbook and forms for enrollment to be filled out.
