First Presbyterian Preschool has excellent teachers with many years of experience in early childhood education. While following Creative Curriculum guidelines to ensure developmentally appropriate practices, they have created a “play based” environment at all ages for learning. Much of the day is focused on play and social/emotional growth. With this in mind, the teachers help the children form positive, trusting relationships, encourage independence, and foster creativity.
