First Presbyterian Preschool was established in 1960 and is known as a creative and artistic preschool. We believe that it is important for children to experience a Christian environment and take part in religious activities.  We pride ourselves on our qualified and degreed teachers who specialize in Early Childhood Education. Our curriculum emphasizes school readiness and literacy with a hands-on approach to teaching. Our classrooms are fully equipped with everything that children need for a play base program. We offer small class sizes and excellent student teacher ratios with a lead teacher and an assistant in each room. Our program is a year round program for children three months to five years. Tours are available year round by appointment and current tuition pricing can be given out at that time or by phone. Find out about any upcoming events by clicking on this link to our calendar.
