Early Learning Center

The Early Learning Center Program and Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program at Bell Shoals Baptist Academy offers a well-structured, exciting, and fun approach to education for our youngest students at all three campus locations.  BSBA considers it a privilege to have each child as part of our Academy family.  We feel that the Early Learning Center is an extension of the home, and we strive to partner with each family in the education of their child.

We are committed to creating a classroom environment in which children feel secure, safe and loved. At BSBA we strive to integrate all subjects and activity with the Word of God. We endeavor to develop a spiritual foundation that will affect our students for years to come.

Each day at BSBA children are engaged in learning through participation in group discussion, art, language arts, foreign language experiences, music, as well as health and safety thorough hands-on projects and indoor and outdoor activities.  Daily activities develop each child’s education in language, math, and writing.
