First Presbyterian Church Preschool offers half day and full day preschool classes for children ages one through five on a part-time of full-time basis. Families may choose the number of days attended that works best for their family.

Additionally, our Extended Day Program allows enrolled half-day students to “drop-in” alongside full-day students as needed on a reservation basis. Here, students have a well-balanced and nutritious lunch, rest time, an extracurricular rotation of music, art, STEM, and gross motor instruction, and have additional center time.

The school operates Monday through Thursday from 7:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 7:45a.m. to 12:15p.m. Children enroll in specific classes that meet on specific days, depending on the age of the child. The school year begins in mid August with orientation days for parents, and ends the middle of May. The program is not in operation during the summer months.
