Celebration Kinderschool is a parttime program that serves children from 1 year old through Kindergarten. Our goal is to help children connect to God through learning and to help their parents connect to others. Our programs runs on a calendar similar to the Leon Public Schools calendar. Our normal school week is Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Extended care is available. See below for more information!

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and with people.
Dear CBK Parents,
Today (Sept 1) we are super excited to have our first Friday Pizza of our new school year! We are tremendously blessed that Michael & Alicia Holmes, owners of Uncle Maddio’s Pizza, have supported CBK for the last few years by partnering with us in providing healthy and delicious pizza for our children.
As we enter into our twentieth year of ministry, we consider it a very special privilege to love, care and teach Jesus to about one hundred-thirty precious children here at Celebration Baptist Kinderschool. Parents have entrusted us with their most prized possession and we consider ourselves to be completely blessed.
Our God-given mission is to Connect with God and Others. Our goal is to minister to each and every child and family by trying to meet their individual needs and to make strong connections with them. We hope and pray that they are sensing God’s great love and presence when they walk through the doors each morning. The first two weeks are a time of helping the one- and two-year-olds to adjust to a new school, new teachers, new friends and a new classroom. We are just now really settling into a new routine and we are thankful that God has given us much success through prayer and many wonderful teachers.
One very exciting addition to our space is the new children’s rooms upstairs. We are able to use the space to serve about twenty children in Before School Care by providing centers and manipulatives. Then we use the elevator to bring them downstairs to the classrooms. The transition has been seamless!
Here are our upcoming September events:
- September 3, 11:30am, CBC event- Families with Preschoolers Community Gathering (lunch included)
- September 4- No School ~ Labor Day
- September 6 & 7- Individual Student Pictures by Nicole Myhre
- September 8, 9:00-10:00am- Grandparent Appreciation Day in Broom Tree Café
- September 10, 11:30am, CBC event- Families with Children Community Gathering (lunch included)
- September 29- No School ~ Leon County School Fall Holiday
On Friday, September 8th 9:00-10:00, we want to recognize and thank all our wonderful grandparents. Last year we began to notice that so many grandparents drop off and pick up their grandchildren every day. We know that if our families did not have extended family to assist them, they would not be able to attend CBK because we are a part-time preschool. Upon arrival, you will find two photo booths set up in the Broom Tree Café so that grandparents can take pictures with their grandchildren. We will develop the pictures and give them out on the following week. After you have your photo taken, you may walk your grandchild(ren) to their classrooms. Then please come to the Broom Tree Café for a light breakfast as well as a time to connect with other grandparents. For this event, there is no formal presentation. It is a time of fellowship and connection.
We are looking forward to all that God has in store for us in this new school year and the opportunity to share God’s work and goodness in and through this ministry.Many blessings,
Celebration Baptist Kinderschool uses "WEE Learn" which stands for Weekday Early Education. This Christian material uses preschool centers to promote the child's development in all areas. The purpose of this guide is to provide a framework on which teachers can build an early childhood program that allows children to grow and develop as Jesus did... "Jesus grew in wisdom and stature; and in favor with God and man." (Luke 2:52) We use an additional curriculum called ABC Jesus Loves me. Parents and teachers may also join their page on Facebook as well as utilize their webpage for additional resources. The curriculum for the Kindergarten program is multi-faceted. The ABeka curriculum is used to teach Reading, Phonics, Social Studies, Handwriting, and Science. The math curriculum we use is Saxon Math. A computer lab with age appropriate computer software also enhances the curriculum.
- Current Immunization Form- Request this by phone from your pediatrician; they will inform you if you need an appointment. We will need an updated Blue Card immunization form.
- Current Student Health Form (Yellow Sheet)- Request this by phone from your pediatrician; they will inform you if you need an appointment. The state has recently updated this form and there is a parent section on the back that must be completed as well as signed a parent.
We offer an extended day program from 1:00-2:30 called "Stay & Play!" It will be available for ALL ages! If you are interested in having your child "Stay & Play," sign-up is a one-time event for the school year. Please see the front office if you need to modify. We do offer a drop-in opportunity since we have staff available in the afternoons.
It is our prayer that your child will grow in many ways through our program. God helps us to grow mentally, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. In Luke 2:52 it says “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
We look forward to connecting with all of you as we work together to foster the best year for your child! Our heart’s desire is to love you and your family as Christ loves you! Thank you for giving us the wonderful privilege of serving you and your precious family!!!!
‘We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.’ I Thessalonians 2:8
