"Early Childhood Mission Statement
The Early Childhood staff at First Presbyterian Church will promote the development of each child physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually at his/her own pace through a developmentally appropriate curriculum.
the Early Childhood Program provides an atmosphere rich in opportunities for growth and acceptance;
that each child has the right to childhood in a world that sometimes forgets childhood's importance;
in providing safety and security in the promise of God's love for each child regardless of race or religious belief;
that children and families affirm each other as they grow together during the early childhood years.
It may look like play, but it is a child's work to manipulate, change, try again, and discover. Our curriculum is developmental. We offer many opportunities to stretch and expand horizons while respecting the child's need and right to learn at his/her own pace. Units and learning emphasis are reported by teachers through daily reports, weekly and monthly newsletters notes and calendars and conferences.
