First Presbyterian Church Preschool
From the Pastor
Presbyterians in general, and First Presbyterian Church in particular, believe that each of us reaches our God-given potential when we develop our sense of inquisitiveness, grow in knowledge, and expand our social skills. First Presbyterian Preschool plays a vital role in carrying out that vision. We are happy to share this commitment with our church members and our larger community. With God's help and through our excellent administration, faculty, and facility, we endeavor to create the most caring, safe, and preparatory program possible. We provide special care and developmental encouragement to each child and offer a wonderful resource for families with young children in this community. We value your trust and welcome your suggestions about how we can grow even stronger in the ministry we share.
