First Baptist Church ECM

First Baptist Church Lumberton, 7th and Walnut, has joined the Lumberton Chamber.  They have also  done a complete renovation of its Early Childhood Ministry facilities.  In addition to being bright and inviting, the 70 year old facility had a complete plumbing upgrade, replacing all water supply pipes enabling each classroom to have direct access to toilets and sinks, bringing it up to the most modern childcare codes and recommendations.  Teachers were given input to help choose colors and aesthetics so that they and their children are comfortable in the space.  

Additionally, the NC Pre-K space was renovated in the second phase of construction.  The NC Pre-K rooms are large enough to house twice the number of children which come to them, giving wonderful space for learning centers, and ample room for. movement and activities.  

Registration is ongoing, with slots available for 12 two year olds, 5 three year olds, and 10 four year olds in the fall.  NC Pre K applications are being accepted at First Baptist in the day care office and at Robeson County Partnership for Children, 210 E. 2nd Street.
