About CBK

Celebration Baptist Kinderschool has been providing excellent early childhood education and childcare to families in Tallahassee for over 21 years. CBK is a Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) provider staffed with qualified early education teachers. We are a part-time program that serves children from 18 months old through pre-kindergarten. Our goal is to help children connect to God through learning and to help their parents connect to others.

Our program 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!

In 2019, CBK was designated a Best Christian Workplace by the Best Christian Workplaces Institute for the third time.
