First School is a support ministry of First Baptist Church. The purpose of the school is to provide children with a real opportunity to learn the Christian way of life on their own level. They will do this as they work with loving, understanding teachers who express Christian ideas and attitudes in thought, word, and deed and as they use interesting materials in work and play situations with other children. 

It is also the objective to provide a warm, loving environment in which each child is recognized for his or her uniqueness and is encouraged to develop to his or her potential. Our teachers provide a nurturing environment to promote academic, spiritual, emotional and social growth. Through positive reinforcement, we strive to instill the value and joy of learning within each child. 

At First School, we provide a safe environment for our students, with limited access to the building. We take pride in knowing that parents can rest well knowing that their children are in a safe environment where they can learn and grow. All staff are certified in ADE, CPR and First Aid.

Amanda Jacobs

Amanda has been with First School since 2016. She began as a substitute teacher for all the classes. She became a teacher of two- year-olds in 2017 before becoming the Director in 2021. She holds a degree in Business Office Technology and Accounting. 

She loves that it is a small school so that the family of the students become family and friends to her, and she is grateful that she  gets to watch them grow from the 2–year-old program to kindergarten and beyond. 

She was born and raised in Jesup and has been married for 17 years and has three boys. In her free time, she likes to travel, grow and put-up food from her garden and raise chickens.
