About Us

First Presbyterian Church Preschool celebrates 76 years of high quality education. We currently serve ages 1-5 through the use of Creative Curriculum. Creative Curriculum is a play-based curriculum that focuses on educating the “whole child” through active exploration of his or her environment. Children of all developmental levels and religious creeds are welcome. In 2021, our facility underwent a renovation to the building, updating spaces, and adding additional preschool spaces and extensive security features.

Program Offerings

Our preschool offers a Half-Day program Monday through Friday from 7:45am-12:15pm for ages one through five as well as an Extended Day Program Monday through Friday from 7:45am-5:15pm for ages two through five. Parents choose the schedule that works best for their family. Students may attend 2-5 days per week. Our program also offers parent education, family events, and a summer camp program. Through a collaboration with Kanawha County Schools, we also offer one Pre-K classroom of 20 students tuition-free. This classroom operates Monday through Thursday from 7:45am-2:45pm.
