The learning approach at First Presbyterian Preschool is predicated on the belief that children are curious, creative, and capable. Our program philosophy is implemented through project-focused, emergent, play-based curriculum. STEAM concepts (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) are infused in all areas of our curriculum.
Our classes meet late August through May. Because First Presbyterian Preschool is in the heart of midtown Atlanta, we generally follow the Atlanta Public School schedule with the same winter and spring breaks. Inclement weather closings are determined independently by the preschool. Additionally, the preschool schedules days off for faculty professional
development and religious holidays.
Preschool hours are 8:50 a.m. to 12 noon. Children may bring a lunch from home and attend Lunch Bunch Tuesdays through Fridays from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. Registration is by semester and requires a small additional fee.
For the 2020-21 school year, preschool hours will be 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
We also offer after school programs through the church’s School of Fine Arts Offering options for social interaction and enrichment beyond the school day.
We offer after school enrichment programs in many disciplines All programs are offered from Tue – Fri from 1:10 p.m. – 2:10 p.m
Although not part of First Presbyterian Preschool, the church offers a Parent Morning Out (PMO) program each day from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm for children beginning at 8 weeks of age. The PMO program is housed in the same building as the preschool.
