First Steps, First Baptist Church Allen's Preschool Ministry, ministers to Preschoolers ages birth-kindergarten, their parents and teachers. We seek to provide a safe and secure environment with age appropriate activities according to the preschoolers’ developmental characteristics and abilities.
Our goal is to continually build upon the spiritual foundations that are laid in our preschoolers’ lives.
We want every Bible story, every activity, and every song used while preschoolers are at church to help them learn more about God in ways they can understand and apply to their lives.
Most preschool activities take place on the first floor of our Children's Building (see map).
