First Presbyterian Church Preschool

First Presbyterian Church Preschool

From the Pastor

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.

Dear Parent,

Thank you for your interest in First Presbyterian Preschool for the 2020-21 school year. We have several options available to help fit your needs.

Our Early Risers program, for all ages, is available to those families in need of early drop-off, Monday through Friday. The program opens at 7:30.

Programs for infants (up to 15 months), toddlers (16-21 months), twos (2 by Sept. 1), and 3-year olds, (on TTh and must be potty trained) are offered through our Children’s Day Out program from 8:30-12:00.

Our Preschool offers 3 day (MWF) and 2-day (TTh) three-year-old classes (3 by Sept. 1). We offer 3, 4, and 5-day four-year-old classes (4 by Sept. 1), as well as a Kindergarten class (5 by Sept. 1). Students must be potty trained to enter any of the Preschool classes. Our Preschool hours are 8:30-12:00 and Kindergarten hours are 8:30-1:30.
