1st Kids Academy

Helping Preschoolers Learn and Grow

Enrolling Now!

Since 1984, 1st Kids Academy, a Preschool Ministry of First Euless, has provided a place for newborns through pre-kindergarten age children to learn God’s love along with learning academic and social skills.

Our preschoolers learn biblical truth and principles through creative methods such as drama, music, crafts, teaching and discussions. Each of our classrooms is designed to enhance the child’s learning experience through different learning centers. Those centers include books, blocks, puzzles, arts, and crafts, etc. Our classrooms are staffed with professionally trained teachers who are committed to loving and teaching your child through each developmental stage. Over 120 preschoolers and their families make us their choice for early education each year!

1st Kids Academy is a partner with the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD, and our teachers are invited to attend training to help enhance their preschool teaching skills.
