First Presbyterian Preschool teachers bring outstanding qualifications and talents to our classrooms. Our teachers are all degreed, with over half holding Bachelor’s degrees in Early Childhood Education (ECE), Early Childhood Special Education or Early Childhood Development. They eagerly incorporate early childhood research and ideas into their curriculum planning and daily practice. Working in classroom teams, our teachers are the pillars of our community.
In addition to their bachelor’s degrees, fifteen percent of our team hold Master’s degrees in either ECE or Special Education. 100% of our specialists (Art, Music, Gardening/physical health) hold degrees in their respective fields. Being a learning community is a high priority at FPP. Our teachers participate in 25-30 hours of professional development each school year. They eagerly incorporate their enhanced knowledge and skills in early childhood research and ideas into their curriculum planning and daily practice.
