The mission of Gulf Beach Baptist Preschool is to provide a loving, nurturing, and Christian environment, which will be the basis for preparing each child to develop to his/her fullest potential spiritually, physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

 Preschool Objectives


The  first years of a child’s education can set the course of his or her life. That’s why it is vital to rouse their curiosity and provide a rich environment for learning and growth. 

Life At Preschool


At Gulf Beach Baptist Preschool, the staff sees themselves as partners with parents in the faith education, as well as the general education of each child. Early Childhood Education is seen as very important in the development of your child.


We are driven by one powerful idea: every child deserves to reach his or her full potential. It’s a promise that starts at birth, with a passion for early learning that must be nurtured. For over 20 years, our early childhood programs have engaged children in a curriculum that balances developmental and traditional academic principles. We foster a lifelong love of learning within a joyful and nurturing environment.


Our Objectives as we teach your child:


• Provide an environment which is Christ centered and based on the gospel values
• Provide a PLAY BASED learning environment, which encourages children to participate in concrete activities             through active learning experiences and based on their interest and curiosity
• To give each child unconditional love with smiles, friendly words, encouragement and care
