MEET THE TEACHERS
A MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTOR
TAMMY SHAW, DIRECTOR
Hello. My name is Tammy Shaw and I have been the Teacher/Director of Saluda Baptist Church Preschool since 2007. Prior to this time, I was employed by Saluda School District One as a Speech Therapist and later as a regular classroom teacher.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Correction from Columbia College and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina.
I am originally from Saluda where I graduated from Saluda High School. I am married to Wayne Shaw, my high school sweetheart, and we have two married adult children and five grandchildren. I am a member of Saluda Baptist Church, where I teach Sunday School and help in various other activities.
ROBIN HALL, ASSISTANT
My name is Robin Hall. I grew up here in Saluda and I still call this community home with my husband Durand and our 3 wonderful children: Brooks, Lilly, and Brenley.
After graduating from Saluda High School, I went on to obtain an Associate’s Degree in Radiology Technology. I worked 15 years in X-Ray and as an Ultrasou8nd Technologist.
I’m a member of St. Paul UMC. This is my second year with Saluda Baptist Preschool where I truly enjoy watching the kids learn and grow every day.
Who Are We?
The Saluda Baptist Church Preschool program was established in 2005 to promote school readiness in a Christian-based environment. Our program was built using Proverbs 22:6 as a guideline: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
When Do We Meet?
The program runs September through May of each year, following closely with the Saluda School District One schedule for holidays.
Three-year olds participate one morning a week and four-year folds participate three mornings a week.

What Do We teach?
The program is designed to prepare children ages 3 and 4 for success in kindergarten through play. Centers are designed to incorporate many preschool standards as the children play with toys and each other. Foundations in reading and mathematics as well as cooperation and community are stressed throughout the half-day program.
Biblical foundations are also stressed daily through Bible stories, songs, and finger plays. Weekly our Pastors come to tell the “Story of the Week” and teach about prayer and other Biblical truths.
Who Can Attend SBC Preschool?
Our preschool opens at 8:15am and is completed each by at noon.
Children must be three or four years old by September 1st of the current year to attend our program. Tuition is paid monthly.
“SBC Preschool has been a blessing to my family and daughters. We love Mrs. Tammy and the staff! Not only have they prepared our children for kindergarten, they continue to teach them the words of the Bible and Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are so thankful for this program and the impact it has had on our girls.”
“SBC Preschool has been such a blessing to our family. Watching our boys grow academically through this program has been so much fun. It’s so awesome hearing your child recite The Pledge of Allegiance for the first time and learn to write their name. All of that is so neat. However, watching your child grow in the Lord through this program… to be taught about and shown Jesus’ love…that’s something that far outweighs the rest of it for us!”
“SBC Preschool has caring, loving teachers that helped prepare my children for their kindergarten year. They foster independence and a love for learning with Christ as the central focus. We are grateful for SBC Preschool.”
