About Us

Westoak Woods Baptist Preschool is a licensed Child-Care Center by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Our program serves children ages 1 – 5 years old as of September 1st.  

Purpose- 

Our purpose at Westoak Woods Baptist Preschool is to provide a safe and positive environment that is developmentally appropriate and nurtures the “whole child” through physical, intellectual, emotional, and social play-based learning while recognizing the individual needs and differences of children.  Through Christian principles and teacher-directed/assisted activities children are encouraged to be independent thinkers and life-long learners.  We recognize that families are the most important teachers and we strive to partner with you to prepare your preschoolers for their future.

Curriculum-

Curriculum is unit-based, faith-based, and play-based.  The curriculum provides a wide variety of activities to enhance the physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and spiritual growth of the young child. Classroom activities include: dramatic play, blocks, home living, music, books, science, games, art, nature studies, outdoor play, and fine and gross motor skills. These activities are presented in play-based centers that provide opportunities for children to learn through play and discovery. We believe that preschoolers learn through their play. Play is critical to the healthy growth and development of preschool children. As children play, theylearn to make sense of the world around them. Throughplay children can develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments. Large group activities are used to extend learning.  Language development, number concepts, pre-reading and pre-math readiness, and exposure to good literature are integrated into all of the daily activities, and all of the preschool TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills) are covered in our curriculum.  In addition, teachers utilize the Weekday Early Education Learning Curriculum as the foundational curriculum.  Itis a developmentally appropriate weekday curricula for Christian settings designed for early childhood education, age’s birth through Pre-K.

Ministry-

Our weekday preschool is a ministry of Westoak Woods Baptist Church.Age appropriate spiritual activities are woven into our daily activities. A brief weekly chapel is conducted for the three and four year old classes. Our goal is to develop a healthy, positive concept within the children, as well as awareness that they are loved by God.
