Central Weekday Preschool in Wendell, NC opened in 2010. The primary goal has always been to teach children about the amazing love of God. This is accomplished best when children and families feel that love through the warm, caring staff who have each committed their lives to Christ Jesus. Providing foundational learning skills to help each child grow is a vital part of preschool at Central Baptist Weekday Preschool.

Central Weekday Preschool is situated at the intersection of Wendell Falls Parkway and Poole Road. This location is very convenient to both US 64/264 and Downtown Wendell. It is about 20 minutes from Downtown Raleigh, and less than three miles from both Lake Myra Elementary and Wendell Elementary.

Our Mission

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 Weekday Preschool is to assist families by providing Christian childcare/Preschool 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.

Our Vision

The vision of Central Weekday Preschool is to impact Eastern Wake County through our ministries to children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a manner that will both glorify God and transform our communities for generations to come.

Our Purpose

Central Weekday 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 is for each Preschooler to:

  • learn about Jesus and His love for him/her
  • 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 Weekday 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 children’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).
