First Presbyterian Preschool & Kindergarten

  • First Presbyterian Preschool & Kindergarten believes that children "learn what they live".
  • We strive to create a living environment where each child's curiosity is kindled by the challenge of new ideas, where his understanding of people and the world around him can be explored and expanded, where his own sense of self-esteem can grow and develop in harmony with others.
  • Our purpose is to provide the essential ingredients to foster the self-confidence, self-respect, and self-motivation children need at every stage of their lives.
  • We try to expand a child's world by providing him with the opportunity to form relationships with both children and adults outside his family.
  • We want to help each child develop a feeling of self-assurance so that he is free to be curious, to be creative, to experiment, to learn.

School Reviews

Wonderful, warm, learning environment! I have truly enjoyed the parent co-op experience and is a treasure to share my little one's day to day development. I would highly recommend FPPK for any families who value commitment to early learning and development.
