Weekday Education

Welcome to the Weekday Education Program at First Baptist Griffin!

We believe that a good beginning for every child is of great importance. In Proverbs 22:6 it is written: “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

Our program focuses on providing an atmosphere where young children can grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, academically and physically. We have classes available for children age one through kindergarten. We appreciate the role you play as a parent, and we consider it a privilege to be a part of your child’s life. We look forward to seeing your child grow and develop.

After viewing our website, you are welcome to visit our program by observing the classrooms and meeting with me for additional information. If I can ever be of assistance or service to you, please feel free to call on me.
