All Faiths recently celebrated its 45th birthday! It's hard to believe we've been serving the Hardin County community for such a long time. Originally known as All Souls, the school started at the Catholic church, but soon outgrew their facility. In 1972, First United Methodist Church opened its doors to the little school and it was renamed All Faiths Day School. It grew and thrived under the leadership of Director, Mary Catherine Martin. She served as director for over 25 years! The school is forever indebted to Mrs. Martin and the Board of Directors that had a vision to create a happy home for pre-schoolers in Silsbee, Kountze, Lumberton and the surrounding areas. All Faiths is a part of the ministry of the church to the families of the community, and is proud of all the precious lives that have been touched over the past decades.
Since its inception, All Faiths has striven to provide an opportunity for two, three, four and five year old children to live, work and play together in a friendly, happy, Christian atmosphere where there is co-operative living, an opportunity to gain new skills, form good habits and to learn to be responsible members of a group. The school also strives to enrich the children’s lives by providing education in the Christian faith. It is the goal of All Faiths to ensure that each child receives the cognitive, emotional, and social skills needed before entering into the public school system by providing an appropriate curriculum that meets these needs. The school also aims to assist the church in its responsibility of helping families to develop religious homes by providing a program of parent education and family development.
