A Message from Mrs. Debbie…

Thank you for your interest in our Child Development Center.  Our philosophy is based on our belief that God has made each of us as unique individuals.  By word and example Jesus Christ loved little children.  It is our goal to do the same at Hixson First Baptist Child Development Center.  By providing a sound educational background, each child will have the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.  The purposes of our Center are under-girded with each of these developmental areas.

Spiritual:  Each child will grow in his knowledge of God and His love and care.  We want our children to be aware of God’s world around us.  We teach that Jesus is God’s son and that Jesus is their friend.

Physical:  Children will become aware of their physical needs through play and movement activities.

Mental:  Through games, use of learning centers, artwork, songs, books, puzzles, blocks, and group activities, we provide opportunities for learning.  Children will observe, experiment, discover, think and generalize at their individual levels of experience and development.

Emotional:  Our desire is to help each child move from a home environment into a school setting.  We want to help by encouraging children to mature in their reactions and in the expression of their emotions.  We want each child to feel good about themselves and be able to communicate all feelings; even anger or sadness.  These are goals we all enjoy seeing children attain.

Social:  Children will acquire interest, attitudes, and values, which aids them in becoming secure and positive in their relationships involving their peers and adults outside the home.

CURRICULUM
HFBC uses the Pinnacle Curriculum, which is a guide for the faith-based early childhood classroom.  It is designed to assist teachers with program planning that encourages children to develop emerging skills in all developmental areas while discovering and experiencing God’s love.

Pinnacle offers a healthy balance between:
