PHILOSOPHY

We strive to provide a high quality academic education within a Christian environment of love, support, and acceptance. We pursue a learning community that nurtures creativity  and critical thinking and in which children develop skills that prepare them for their next academic steps.

Each child at First Presbyterian Preschool is celebrated as a unique creation of God. Therefore, we attempt to individualize instruction to meet the needs and skills of each student. We do this in an atmosphere of love and understanding rather than a climate of pressure. The Preschool welcomes and celebrates children and families of all ethnic, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds.

Core Values & Beliefs

The three pillars of our core value system are nurturance, community, and spirituality.

Nurturance
We believe:

  • An inclusive environment that embraces individuality is essential to a child’s social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual growth and development.
  • Validating children’s feelings builds self-esteem and mutual respect among students and teachers, while a warm and accepting approach to teaching encourages their self
    expression and ability to make appropriate choices
  • An intimate, expertly guided, small group atmosphere provides the best early out-of-home setting to develop socialization skills.

Community
We believe:

  • Exposing children to people of varied ages, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds, familial dynamics, and physical and mental abilities teaches respect for others and fosters
    a climate of inclusion.
  • A partnership with parents is essential to the learning and overall success of our children and the school.
  •  Teaching children to care for their surroundings and the people with whom they interact promotes compassion, empathy, and responsible stewardship of resources.

Spirituality
We believe:

  • Each person is loved by God and has worth and dignity.
  • Through monthly chapel, prayer, and adult modeling, children find responsibility and empathy for our world.
  • In embracing children of varied faiths, while celebrating Christian traditions.
