Members of the First Presbyterian Church founded the Presbyterian Community Preschool in 1963. It is a non-profit, non-sectarian preschool, governed by a board of elected members who serve three-year terms. The Board is responsible to First United Presbyterian Church's Session and follows a Constitution and Bylaws.
At Presbyterian Community Preschool, we believe a happy child is a successful child. Our mission is to provide a welcoming, safe, and stimulating environment where our students learn, play, and grow, and their achievements are celebrated.
Purpose and Goals
Presbyterian Community Preschool is designed to provide a safe, supportive, stimulating environment, using basic Christian concepts to meet the needs of young children and their families. Its basic purpose is to complement and supplement the efforts of parents during a crucial and formative period of their child’s life by providing a positive, caring and individualized preschool experience.
Our goals are:
To know and care about each child, to build on each child’s strengths, and to give encouragement when needed.
To provide and stimulate educational interests and curiosity that will carry on through the child’s life.
To foster self-reliance and independence yet place emphasis on socialization.
To teach children to utilize their resources and abilities in varied situations.
To increase the child’s competencies in all areas: cognitive, creative, social, emotional and physical.
