Who We Are
PALS (Play and Learn School) at Paramount Baptist Church is a 3-day-a-week pre-kindergarten for 3 and 4-year-olds that is licensed by the state of Texas. The PALS program was developed to provide biblically based, age-appropriate education that allows children to experience God’s love and to show His love to others in a safe, caring environment. We seek to meet the needs of the whole child so that he/she may develop spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially, physically, and mentally. With its caring teachers, small class ratios and “hands-on” activities, including STEM classes for 4-year-olds and music classes for all children, PALS is a great option for your child.
Children must be 3 or 4-years-old by September 1st of the current year to be eligible for the PALS pre-kindergarten classes. These classes are structured based on your child’s age.
We currently have openings in our 4-year-old Pre-K classes (2020-2021) and maintain a waiting list for other classes should an opening become available. Please contact Stephanie Traynor in the PALS office at (806) 350-7241 or email to schedule a tour & receive information.
PALS Fall In-house Enrollment begins Monday, March 1st for PBC members, PALS and/or MDO families and anyone in the community that requested a packet. The evening of Tuesday, March 23rd we will hold an Open House 6:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m. for those in the community interested in attending the program. Enrollment will remain open until classes are filled.
To enroll for pre-kindergarten you will need:
⦁ $75 Registration fee
⦁ A completed enrollment packet that includes the State Admission Form for each child you are enrolling
⦁ Immunization Records and Doctor’s Statement
The class format is based on an activity-teaching method that gives children learning opportunities, skills practice, and healthy social interaction. Classrooms are arranged in learning centers where children can make choices for individual and small group activities. These centers include art, blocks, books, puzzles, home-living, music, and nature. Bible stories and values are interwoven throughout each unit. Love and the appreciation for God and His creation are emphasized through appropriate educational and fun activities. The PALS program also includes STEM classes for 4-year-olds and music classes for all children.
