Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Preschool is often a child's first school experience and sets the stage for future years of formal education. First Presbyterian Preschool provides a safe, caring, Christian environment that stimulates the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of children."
