At Seneca Baptist, we challenge our students to meet their full, God-given potential. Whether your child will continue their education in a public or private setting, their experience at Seneca Baptist Preschool will prepare them to meet the challenges ahead.
Our 3 and 4-year old programs are designed to address the SC Standards for K-4 and Kindergarten set by the state. We currently use the national "Common Core" standards along with our preschool curriculum. The teachers use hands-on actvities, songs, games, and individual instruction to ensure that your child masters these standards. Seneca Baptist Preschool does not advocate using extensive worksheets to instruct young children.
Unlike public school programs, Seneca Baptist Preschool also has the opportunity to incorporate Biblical principals into every aspect of our curriculum. We focus on a specific Bible story and memory verse each week, and every Wednesday your child will participate in a chapel service. We encourage your child to grow both spiritually and academically.
Report cards will be sent home twice a year for our 4 year old students. Progress reports will be sent home in all our classes at frequent intervals throughout the year! We want you to be aware of the progress your child is making both accademically, socially, and behaviorally.

Seneca Baptist Preschool offers several extra activities for students to enjoy throughout the week!
On Tuesdays, students will enjoy 30 minutes of music class. Students will enjoy singing while learning beginning music skills.
On Tuesdays, students will enjoy 35 minutes of computer class brought to us by Computer Pals where students are taught the different componants of the computer, how to use a mouse, and how to opperate different programs. This is a great opportunity for our students as once they leave preschool, they are expected to know how to use current technology in all of the public schools.
On Wednesdays, students will enjoy 30-45 minutes of chapel! As a school we go to the church sanctuary where we listen to our Bible story for the week, practice our memory verse, and pray as a school and in our individual classes.
On Thursdays, students will enjoy 40 minutes of Library time in our church library. Weekly readers are scheduled to read to each individual class and then our 3's and 4's classes are allowed to check out a book and keep it for the week; returning books every Thursday so they can check out a new book.
On Fridays, students will enjoy field trips that we have planned, special days, and playground time if it is nice out!
Seneca Baptist Preschool is open five days a week from 8:30am to 11:30am. We open our doors in the morning for drop off at 8:20am and parents must pick thier child up at the end of the day no later than 11:40am. Our two year old classes only attend Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Seneca Baptist Preschool will start the 2014-2015 school year on Wednesday, August 27, 2014. For the remainder of the year, we will follow the calendar set by Oconee County with the exception of Christmas. Our last day of school for the 2015 school year will be May 29, 2015. When the Oconee County public schools are closed due to weather conditions, we will also be closed. If the public schools are running on a 2 hour delay, we will be closed.
At the beginning of the year, we send home tentative yearly calendars with each child that has all of our programs, fundraisers, and special days listed.
You are welcome to visit and volunteer at any time! We love to have parents and grandparents help us in our classrooms. There will be a background check performed on all visitors and volunteers before they are allowed to be in a classroom.
You will be invited to attend several special events throughout the year. Students in various classes plan presentations for many holidays including Thanksgiving, Christmas, Presidents' Day, Mother's Day, and the end of the year. You will be given at least a month's notice of these events so you can corrdinate your schedule to attend!
