The First Presbyterian Church First School was founded in 1978 as a ministry of the church to provide a unique learning experience for children of our church community. Our overall goal is to minister to the needs of each child in a nurturing Christian learning environment which promotes the growth of the total child.

We believe that children learn best by doing, and that through play, children make discoveries on their own. What the child learns through creating something is more important than the finished product. We foster an atmosphere in which each child is valued by the teacher for his or her own individual qualities. Each one is encouraged to learn as benefits his or her level of readiness.
