Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Welcome to Chester Baptist Preschool. We have been serving children in the Chester and surrounding areas for over 30 years.  We offer classes for children ages 3, 4 and children who turn 5 after September 30th.

Open for Ages 3 through 5!

Monday - Thursday: 9:30am-1:00pm

Our three year old program provides social and educational experiences for children who have not turned 4 by September 30th.  Children in our 3 year old classes will be working on social/emotional skills, as well as academics. Play time is an important part of their learning process.  This is all provided by loving teachers who guide and instruct students in a Christ centered environment.
Our four/five year old program provides children the opportunity to prepare for kindergarten in a fun, loving and safe environment. Our teachers are committed to providing dynamic experiences that will keep your child engaged and wanting to return day after day.  Along with academics, 4 year old classes are working on their social and emotional skills, as well as self help skills to foster the independence they will need when entering kindergarten.
All Chester Baptist Preschool classes start at 9:30am and pick up is by 1:00pm Monday through Thursday.
Our 2023-2024 school year will begin on August 28, 2023.

Benefits to attending Chester Baptist Preschool

Your son or daughter will not only learn the basic learning blocks, but they will gain an even greater foundation focused on Jesus.

Learn About Jesus!

Teach your child in the way they should go; knowing Jesus and creating a relationship with Him. We strive to spread the Good News of Jesus to all of our Preschoolers each and everyday!


We are excited to announce that all classes will have the opportunity to attend a STEAM class in our new STEAM lab. Our future scientists will have so much fun exploring the world around them that God has created.

Dynamic and Educational

Our preschool program provides a dynamic and exciting environment for your child to start their educational career.  All classes attend Music class.

Field Trips Galore!

We know that learning can take place not only in a classroom, but outside of it as well.  We love to plan field trips for our students to explore and learning about the world around them.  In the past we have had field trips to the pumpkin patch and dairy farm, Richmond Metro Zoo, Post Office, Chick-Fil-A and museums.
