about our preschool

First Presbyterian Church Preschool has been in existence for over 65 years. Our Preschool is the longest operating preschool in the area. We foster the joy of play and learning throughout our program. Our overall goal is for every child to have a fulfilling first educational experience that will challenge their intellect, and increase their social awareness of the world and its people. We want our children to feel secure, loved, and comfortable as they grow in self-awareness and independence. We encourage children to develop relationships, respect the feelings of their peers, work on problem solving, and above all learn how to express themselves in positive ways.

First Presbyterian Church Preschool welcomes students of any race, color, nationality, religious or ethnic origin; we offer programming for children 16 months to 5 years old. Our Teacher to Student Ratio: 1:5, 1:7 depending on age/class size. All Teachers hold a Master's Degree in Early Education. All Faculty are First Aid and CPR certified.

what's happening?
what makes us different

A unique aspect of our preschool is Gym Class. During the months of November through March, the children have gym class at least once a week (twice for the Pre-K Classes). We have a Gym Teacher who provides 30 minutes of organized gross motor activites (such as using a parachute, playing games, basketball, soccer, and using trollies).

We also have a Special Visitors Program in which we invite visitors to share their talents with our children whether it be an artist, musician, crafter or chef. Music and Art are of great importance in the curriculum that we provide for our students. We invite all families to share their special talents with our program.

We encourage parents to participate in our Preschool: we need help on field trips, planning special preschool events, classroom activities, and helping out as Gym Parent. Parents are very important in making their child's preschool experience the best it can be!
