First Presbyterian Day School serves families who are seeking a faith based preschool program.  We believe providing low student teacher ratios will facilitate exploration, curiosity and problem solving.  These skills support the development of early literacy and mathematics foundations as well as a child's social and emotional growth, preparing them for the rigors of 21st century learning.  We believe in utilizing intentional play, play-based activities with a purpose, in our classes.  

Our preschool provides:Children's Art Show 2017
