First Presbyterian Church Preschool offers a variety of programs to meet student and parental needs. From extended class options to parent education programs, the school strives to offer the community access to early childhood educational opportunities.
Pre-K Program (Ages 3-5):
The Pre-K program offers half day and full day classes for children ages three, four, and five years. Through the use of Creative Curriculum, classroom teachers provide experiences for children to help lay the foundation for life-long learning and success. The West Virginia Early Learning Standards Framework (WV ELSF) is a major tool that helps teachers balance learning between Science, Math, Language and Literacy, Physical Development, Arts and Social/Emotional growth.
Toddler Program (Ages 1 & 2):
The Toddler Program offers half day and full day classes for children ages one and two (must be one year of age by July 1, 2021). Children in the Toddler classes learn discovery through active hands-on sensory learning. Social and Emotional learning is also a key component of the Toddler Program ensuring that young students learn elemental skills in bonding, self awareness, delay of gratification, caring and empathy (just to name a few).
