About the Provider

Description: 1st Church Preschool is an innovative early childhood program providing morning and full day preschool experiences for children ages 3 to 6 years old. Our low child to teacher ratios allow for better supervision and individualized instruction while our flexible scheduling can meet the needs of most families with young children. Our integrated curriculum and literacy-rich environment can provide your children with an abundance of experiences which intentionally promote their developmental skills and knowledge across all domains. Our extensive outdoor playground with gardens offers opportunities for growth and learning out-of-doors while developing an awareness of the natural world. At 1st Church Preschool, we believe a child acquires knowledge about the physical and social worlds in which he or she lives through playful interaction with objects and people — “Learning by Experiencing.”

1st Church Preschool is housed in the First Congregational Church on the Cheshire Green. We are an independent, not-for-profit, child-centered program–not an extension of the Church nor affiliated with its religious program. We welcome families of all races and religious beliefs and embrace opportunities to provide children with multi-cultural and diverse experiences. We strive to provide a safe environment where children can learn confidence, develop respect and pleasure in relationships with others, and feel comfortable at school while away from home. We operate in partnership with families to promote high quality, developmentally informed, loving childcare and education to meet the needs of families in Cheshire and the surrounding communities.
