Day School

Emmanuel Baptist Day School provides a comprehensive curriculum that integrates academic, social, creative, and spiritual learning for children ages 1-3. We offer age-appropriate activities that encourage children to participate in their own learning.

Children who graduate from our school emerge as happy, creative individuals eager to continue learning, discovering and absorbing the world around them.

Developmental skills are taught through weekly thematic units that enhance children’s enthusiasm for learning. They experience a print-rich environment that fosters phonological awareness and pre-reading skills.


Language development and discovery learning are integrated throughout the school day.

Literacy is nurtured by learning to recognize the alphabet letters and their sounds.

Math skills are taught using a hands-on, theme-based curriculum.

Multi-sensory experiences allow children to develop problem-solving skills, conceptual understanding, and self-expression in a relaxing atmosphere.

Play is a very important part of our program. Children’s curiosity is enhanced when they are involved in their own learning. Thus, our classroom activities allow for movement, exploration, and integration of content.

We offer music classes weekly along with special Enrichment Classes on Wednesdays.

  • 2s learn Sign Language and Movement

Spiritual Growth

Opportunities for spiritual growth come from regular visits to the sacred spaces of our campus along with the introduction of daily prayers.

Hailing from Denham Springs, Gayle came to CenLA to study at Louisiana College, where she eventually met Greg.
