First Pres PDO and Preschool

When attending First Pres PDO and Preschool, we believe that children learn best when exposed to age-appropriate educational and play based activities. Early education is an opportunity to nurture children’s creativity, offer enrichment and exploration. We believe in preparing the children with an academic foundation as well as social and emotional education.

Since 1978, our educators have worked on relationship building, positive decision-making, working together and building independence for all children. We learn about God, community and social skills.
Our teaching staff has designed an age-appropriate pre-school curriculum preparing children for a positive, early-education.

Our Staff

Our teaching staff bring a variety of experience from degrees in early and elementary education, curriculum development and school/daycare experience. All staff have met all child-protective requirements, and have been trained in Epi-Pen, CPR, and AED administration.

The Day Here

Each child who attends our program will experience a day consisting of age appropriate pre-school and early educational curriculum including crafts, large motor development, story time, singing, music introduction and free-time activities. Our loving and qualified teaching staff encourage learning through interaction, experience, and play. We have a creative coordinator on staff to assist the teachers in the daily lesson planning, along with extra staff to assist when needed.

“I can’t even begin to tell you how much my children enjoy PDO. All such wonderful and caring teachers. Thank you for all that you do!”
