Fall Planting in the Garden

On Friday we had our first planting day in the garden! Each class planted fall vegetable seeds in their own raised bed – peas, carrots, lettuce, turnips, lots of leafy greens and root veggies. We planted our herb garden so we can explore all the wonderful smells of lavender, mint, rosemary, sage, thyme and more. In our pollinator garden beds, we mounted bird houses, bug hotels and butterfly houses so come spring, we can see all the beautiful creatures that will come to our garden. Now we wait and watch things grow!


Happy Thanksgiving from MBPCP!

We are ready to enjoy a great Thanksgiving here at MBPCP! We hope you all have a wonderful holiday, celebrating with family and friends. We are thankful for each of you, and especially our sweet preschoolers! Remember, the preschool will be closed Wednesday-Friday this week. Happy Thanksgiving!!!


Birthday Bash

What a great time we had at our annual Preschool Fundraiser! A huge thanks to all who came, supported, donated and volunteered for our Birthday Bash. We had a great time celebrating with you, our MBPC Preschool family – bouncing, dancing, eating and partying with our preschoolers and preschool alums! Thanks to your generosity, we raised close to $4000 and received a table full of “birthday gifts” for our classrooms. Every penny will go to our classes and facility, to make our special school the best it can be!

Birthday Bash: MBPC Preschool Fundraiser



Pizza + cupcakes + DJ + bouncies + balloon    animals + photo booth + games + crafts + FUN!

Join us in the MBPC parking lot for an evening of birthday fun! All are welcome…family, friends, church members, neighbors, preschoolers, and preschool alums young & old! 

bday-bash-ticket-picTickets: $15 per adult, $10 per child; Donations always appreciated! Tickets include dinner, drinks, dessert and 2 hours of party fun! All proceeds will “gift” our school with much–needed items for the classrooms and facilities.

You may also bring a small gift to the party, such as new books, dolls, play dough, puzzles and toys. View our Amazon Wish list for more ideas, or to see some of the items we are hoping to purchase from our fundraiser!

bday-bash-donation-picTickets & payment for the event are due by October 3rd! Donations are accepted anytime. RSVP with your pre-paid ticket to join in the fun! You may pay with check or cash in the Preschool or Church Offices, or follow the link to donate with Paypal!

The more we sell, the closer we get to our “gifting” goal! You must purchase a ticket (1 per person)  to attend, but you do not need to bring the physical ticket to the party.  Donations are tax deductible!

We need your help!  If you’d like to volunteer, or have any questions, please contact Mary Liz Ingram: preschool@mbpcusa.org or 967-5037 x3

MBPCP’s Fabulous 5K

“Our 5K is a child-centered classroom for all types of learning styles. From phonics to friendships, individuals grow academically, socially and emotionally.”    -Ms. Bethanne, 5K

With a creativity that exceeds expectations, our 5K begins each day with enthusiasm, ready to learn! With weekly science exploration, art history creations, math, reading, and writing skills, kid-safe cooking projects and more, we dive into all sorts of adventures with unique educational tools and processes, engaging all of the fresh imagination and creativity of our students.

Offering children a program full of fun and interactive education to top off our excellent preschool program, our Kindergarten excels at building confidence and skills with individualized and personal attention. Children leave our program ready and very much prepared to soar into the next stages of school!

About the teacher…Ms. Bethanne

IMG_3729Bethanne Taylor feels that teaching is her calling, and is blessed to be able to do what she loves. Preparing kids emotionally, socially, spiritually and intellectually is the sole purpose behind her curriculum.  Mother of two boys, who both attended MBPC Preschool, Bethanne received a BA in Graphic Design and Art History from Auburn University and a Masters in Art Education (K-12) from UAB. She taught Elementary Art in the Homewood school system for many years. In her words, this is more than a job to her… it is simply what she was meant to do.

Some words from our students…

“My favorite thing about our school is its the best school ever and Ms. Bethanne is the nicest teacher!” 

“My favorite thing about our school is that Ms. Bethanne is here!”

“My favorite thing about our school is learning.”

Some words from our parents…

“Bethanne brings fresh ideas, and her knowledge of art is second to none! We have loved having her and have no doubt 5K was the way to go for us!”

Spaces fill quickly in our unique 5K program…join us today so you don’t miss out! Contact us at preschool@mbpcusa.org or 205/967-5037×4 to set up a tour and to find out more information!
