Bethel Baptist Preschool of Midlothian, Virginia 




Welcome to Bethel Preschool. The Bethel Preschool Early Education Program is a Preschool ministry of Bethel Baptist Church. The purpose of the Bethel Preschool Program is to show the love of Christ to children and their parents by nurturing children to grow in mind, in body and in their relationship with God and others. Our program provides education for children ages 2 and 6 months through 5 and Mother’s Morning Out for children ages 1 to 2 and 5 months. The preschool offers fun, yet structured classes with learning objectives and a focus on the academic, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of preschoolers.

“The teachers are always smiling and really care about the kids.”

― 2’s Parent

“The stability and loving environment this preschool provides has been wonderful for my daughter.”

― 3’s Parent

“He loves telling me how much fun it was and the things he has learned. He came in shy and left a confident little boy and was extremely well prepared for kindergarten.”

― Pre-K Parent

“I can’t say enough good things about Bethel Baptist Preschool and how it’s helped prepare my two sons for kindergarten and beyond. Not only does Bethel’s curriculum build on itself from year to year, but it is delivered by the most caring and loving teachers a parent could ask for. The children have seasonal parties, go on fun and educational field trips, enjoy art/music, and learn their alphabet and other basic concepts, of course! Their days are very well rounded and time well spent. I know parents want to do everything in their power to give their child a hand up to prepare them for the real world. Bethel is a wonderful partner to help you achieve that.”

― Former Pre-K Parent
