Description: The First Presbyterian Church Pre-School was organized in 1978. While sponsored by the church, the pre-school is open to families of any religious denomination and no specific religious education is involved in the curriculum. The Day Care and Pre-School are housed in the church, located on seven acres of land equipped with the necessary materials for an enriching experience.
