We also provide students with a healthy snack every day.
Preschool at First Presbyterian Church is a well-rounded program that features learning, play, story times, prayer, music, crafts, and socialization.
We want all the students that come through the doors of our preschool to be ready for kindergarten by the time they graduate from our program. And, our staff is one of a kind. They are loving, caring, and respectful to the students and parents. Our teachers make sure that the students and their parents are comfortable with them and their environment.
First Presbyterian Preschool is a place of fun, loving, caring, and faithful staff and community members trying to build not only children’s general education, but their faith-based education as well. Each day, the goal is to make sure that the students are getting an education, learning about God, and also having fun! One thing that First Presbyterian Preschool offers that is truly incredible, is a faith-based education. We are one of the few places in the community where your children have the opportunity to learn and get closer to God!
