Maria Harris once wrote: “The Church does not have an education program, it is an education program”.  We the members of First Presbyterian Church take this charge very seriously.  We see our involvement with First Presbyterian Preschool as a vital part of what the church is and who we are all called to be.  With God's help, and through our excellent faculty and administration, it is our desire to provide the most caring, safe, and preparatory program possible. With special care and developmental encouragement offered to each child, we are a wonderful resource for young families in this community.   Please let us know if you have any questions, concern, insights, or suggestions.

...We consider every child in our program a very special and a very treasured gift...It is indeed a blessing and a privilege to share their development...We believe it is our responsibility to help your child grow, to nurture the seed that God has planted...As your child grows, we will encourage them to discover the wonders of our world, realize his/her own unique talents, and learn the joy of sharing with others.
