Presbyterian School's Early Childhood Program cherishes the uniqueness of human growth with a developmental curriculum for three-year-olds and Prekindergarteners. Presbyterian School seeks to develop a positive self-image, a sense of confidence and responsibility, and a true love of learning in each of its Early Childhood students. The Early Childhood program encourages the development and growth of several foundational skills later built upon and utilized in a student’s Lower and Middle School years.

Within the school environment, a child's play is the most important work he or she does. Early Childhood classrooms offer clearly defined, well-equipped, theme-oriented interest areas, which give children the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning experiences. Children are exposed to reading and math materials as well as science, creative art, and dramatic play experiences. The interest centers in the classroom are integral, natural, and effective teaching tools. This type of learning environment provides teachers with the opportunity to assess and individualize instruction based on each child’s needs, developmental differences, and interests. A lead and assistant teacher guide each class through a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Trained and experienced specialists instruct the students in Art, Chapel, Library, Motor Skills and Music.
