“In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16

Hello & Welcome!

Lighthouse Kids Weekday Preschool is not limited to the members of First Baptist, but rather is born out of our desire to provide a nurturing, developmentally appropriate environment that allows each child to grow in all areas.  We seek to serve our community in ministry and witness through Kingdom Education.

We offer classes for 2 year-olds, 3 year-olds, and 4 year-olds that prepare children to enter into kindergarten as well as prepare them socially and spiritually.  We teach faith-based curriculum that integrates learning and the Word.

In order to achieve these goals, we commit to provide:

  • Positive guidance for children that encourages problem solving and managing negative emotions.
  • Respect and understanding of others without regard to race, gender, nationality, religion, or background.

For more information, email us at tracy@fbchartwell.com. We look forward to learning how we can serve you and your little one soon! 

In Christ,

Tracy Starrett, Weekday Preschool Director





Not only do we prepare children for their educational career, but our curriculum is biblically and academically based and is appropriate to the child’s level of understanding.

Christian Teachers

All of our staff profess Christ as Savior and exhibit Christian traits in caring for children and in interaction with their families and coworkers.

Kindergarten Preparation

We employ teaching practices designed to help prepare your child for entrance into kindergarten.  This will include whole group, small group and individual instruction.
