The purpose of First Baptist Church’s Journeyland Mother’s Day Out is to connect preschoolers and their families to a complete life in Christ. We are a Christian educational program for preschoolers ages 18 months to five years. Children enrolled in our program will receive high quality care with learning and play opportunities in a Christian atmosphere. Using a Christian curriculum, children are prepared for kindergarten while learning about God and His son, Jesus.
Time: Tuesday and Thursdays, 9 am-2 PM. We will follow the LC-M CISD School Calendar.
Journeyland Mother’s Day Out will offer a high quality education at a reduced price. In addition to the preschool curriculum and activities, we will keep children until 2:00 at no extra charge. Fees are as follows:
Fall and Spring Session (September through May)
Registration fee per child- $60
Tuition per child- $100 per month
Supply fee per child (2’s, 3’s and 4’s only)- $20
A supply list will also be distributed for the 3 and 4 year old classes.
Enrollment: Children will be enrolled on a first come-first served basis. If you wish to enroll your child in a class that is full, you may place your child’s name on a waiting list. We have a limited number of spaces available and want our teachers to provide the best educational experience for the children enrolled. With this in mind, we will not accept drop-ins.
Children in the 2,3, and 4 year old classes will be placed according to their age on or before Sept. 1st. This is in accordance with public school policy as set forth by the state of Texas.
To enroll your child, please complete the Registration form. The registration fee is due at the time of enrollment. The supply fee is due by September 2, 2014. We request that you keep all forms updated as needed. Only children who are completely toilet trained will be enrolled in the 3 and 4 year old classes. The registration form can be downloaded and printed from the link below, or you may choose to pick up a hard copy in the church office.

The Preschool Ministry at First Baptist Orange strives to maintain a clean, safe environment for your children. We are confident your children will feel safe and loved while in our care. Please let us know if you have any concerns or needs. We seek to minister to your entire family and consider it a privilege to care for your child.
What to Expect
Parents are required to check in their children at the preschool control desk. Please make sure we have your child’s information and allergies on file. The child and parent will be given matching security tags. Only an adult with the proper security tag may pick up the child. Only approved children’s workers who have submitted to a background check will be allowed in the classrooms. Please drop off your child with a clean, dry diaper. If your child is toilet trained, please take them to the restroom before dropping them off. You will be notified if we need you to assist or comfort your child before the service or program ends. We have pagers available upon request.

Preschool And Nursery Policies
Connection Groups: All Preschoolers are welcome to stay both sessions while you go to Connection groups and worship. Teachers in both sessions will provide Bible truths and activities to share Jesus with even our smallest children! Infant formula, milk, or water, must be provided in plastic bottles.
Curriculum and Activities
We use First Look Curriculum. Lessons are designed to teach children 3 basic truths:
- God made me.
- God loves me.
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
First Look allows our children to build a first impression of their loving heavenly Father through exciting activities and crafts, Bible story and worship time. Our preschoolers also enjoy time spent in our indoor playground, the Clubhouse. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our church office at (409) 886-7461. Preschool/Nursery Director: Shelley Fuller
Our Clubhouse is open for our church members and visitors during the week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
