The school offers a non-sectarian program, welcoming children and families of all configurations, religions, races, cultures, and economic backgrounds. Respect for individuality and community building are centerpieces of the program. The Nursery School is dedicated to the development of the whole child in a warm and nurturing environment, with an educational philosophy based on the theory of Developmental Interaction, the program is enhanced and inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach.

Extended Day programming and an Early Summer program are available for 4s and 5s students. Parent participation is welcome and encouraged.

Project A.P.P.L.E. at at The First Presbyterian Church Nursery School combines two of our favorite things—our healthy snack and our gardening programs! Our goal is to initiate conversations and learning around healthy food choices that will continue throughout our children’s lives. Together we are eating healthier at school, experimenting with new tastes and recipes, growing some of our food and composting what is left over.
We welcome and encourage the participation and feedback of First Presbyterian Church Nursery School parents. Parents help us to enrich everyone’s experience at school, and to build a vibrant, inclusive and cooperative community.
