International Friends was established in 1969 and ministers to the needs of families in our multi-cultural community through English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. One of the largest ESL class in Texas, International Friends assists internationals as they adjust to life in the United States. Students in the program improve their conversational English, learn about American culture and discover more about the Christian faith. International Friends meets Wednesday mornings from 9am to 11:30 am September through May at First Baptist Richardson, 1001 N Central Expressway.

Registration occurs Wednesday mornings in the Fellowship Hall on the west side of our campus. To register, just come a few minutes before 9am to complete a registration card and be placed in the appropriate level class. Classes begin at 9am.

We have two hours of classes, and a refreshment break between class hours that provides time for fellowship, announcements, Bible stories, music and cultural exchanges. Special programs throughout the year include a Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas Coffee and Spring Luncheon. Students are also invited and encouraged to participate in all activities at our church.

Nursery care is provided free of charge for children of our students and teachers. Students are asked to pay a registration fee of $5, and textbooks are sold in each class.

Are you looking for an alternative for five day a week kindergarten? Do you want your child in a classroom with a low child/ teacher ratio? Do you want your child to have more personalized time with their teacher?


At First Kids Weekday School, we have a solution for parents looking for an alternative to public school kindergarten.

At First Kids, TK is Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9-2 PM just like the other age groups.  The curriculum closely follows the Kindergarten Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills as outlined by the Texas Education Agency (the same curriculum guidelines the public schools follow).  This includes learning experiences in subject areas including: Reading and Language Arts, Phonological Awareness and Phonics, Writing, Math, Health, Science, Social Studies, Art, and Technology.  Overall, the curriculum is literacy-based just like the Itty Bitty Bookworm curriculum the 3s and 4s classes use at First Kids.  This means that all subject areas incorporate the theme of the book/s for the week which helps children to more easily assimilate their learning.  In addition, the small student/teacher ratio, experiential learning practices (more hands-on rather than pencil and paper), and the Bible curriculum truly make TK an extremely valuable year for children.

If a child is ready and the child meets the age requirements, 1st grade is an option.  Due to the shorter school week, some learning objectives are not covered in as much depth in TK as they would be in a full-time Kindergarten program.  Students are exposed to all of the Kindergarten objectives in the TK class, but additional practice may be needed at home if a child plans to move on to 1st grade the next school year.  If 1st grade is a consideration, I like to know at the beginning of the school year so I can work closely with parents to ensure there are no learning gaps.
