Central Baptist Preschool in Wendell, NC opened in 2010 to help children learn about God, worship, and reach out to others around them, while providing foundational learning skills to grow on. At the time of our opening, we were the only FULL DAY Christian Preschool serving infants to five-year-olds in Eastern Wake County, giving parents an alternative to traditional daycare options. In 2015, we added a School Age Program serving children in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Central Baptist Preschool is conveniently located at 11109 Poole Road, at the intersection of Wendell Falls Parkway and Poole Road. We are less than five minutes from both US 64/264 and Downtown Wendell, about 20 minutes from Downtown Raleigh, and less than three miles from both Lake Myra Elementary and Wendell Elementary, a Creative Arts and Sciences Magnet School.
At Central Baptist Church, we exist to EXALT the Lord Jesus Christ, ENCOURAGE Spiritual Maturity, and EXPRESS the Love of Jesus Christ.
The main mission of Central Baptist Preschool is to assist families by providing Christian childcare in order to “train up a child in the way he should go” (Proverbs 22:6). It is Central’s desire to partner with parents in their effort to lay strong spiritual foundations in the lives of their young children.
The vision of Central Baptist Church Preschool is to impact Eastern Wake County through our ministries to preschoolers with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a manner that will both glorify God and transform our communities for generations to come.
Central Baptist Church Preschool (CBC Preschool) is a ministry of Central Baptist Church. We accept the responsibility of offering quality Christian education, both spiritually and academically. The Preschool will be an extension of a Godly and Christian home, and therefore we will work with the parents to meet the Christian-based goals they have for their children. It is also to be an arm of the church, leading families into its fellowship throughout our community.
Using Deuteronomy 6:4-7 as a Biblical model, we are to diligently teach our children how to love God with all of their heart, soul and strength. Our desire for each Preschooler is that he/she:
• learn about Jesus and His love for them
• learn about the Bible
• think of Central Baptist Preschool as a safe and happy place
• realize the importance of family
• make new friends
Christian Philosophy of Education
The Christian Philosophy of Education at Central Baptist Church Preschool is as follows:
We believe “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” and that all knowledge has its foundation in the Word of God. We teach the Bible as God’s inspired Word and help the children to develop attitudes of love and respect toward it. We train the children to hope in the Lord, to love Him, and to keep His commandments. We encourage the children to know and obey the will of God as revealed in the Scriptures. We strive to stimulate and enlarge the child’s involvement in the church and its world-wide tasks of witnessing and evangelizing.
“Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding” (Proverbs 3:13).
