First Pres Day School
Registration is now open for First Presbyterian Dayschool and After-School Programs!
The First Presbyterian Dayschool is a loving, nurturing, enriching environment for children from the age of 6 weeks through 4-year-old preschool. Each day, they explore developmentally appropriate books, learning materials, toys and other resources to spark their individual growth and curiosity.
Our Dayschool proudly uses the Zoo-phonics ® learning curriculum for all ages. Children learn best when they’re having fun, and they learn by touching and doing. Created by award-winning teachers, Zoo-phonics is a unique and exciting program that engages your whole child–their eyes, ears, mouth, mind and body—with visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning. www.Zoo-phonics.com
Creepers, toddlers and 2-year-old classes introduce the alphabet through Zoo-phonics. They also concentrate on numbers, colors and shapes using weekly themes. Teachers in 3- and 4-four year old programs collaborate for instruction using South Carolina Early Learning Standards and Zoo-phonics, along with the Anderson School District Five Preschool Curriculum. Our program includes best practices to ensure that the children are prepared for entry into kindergarten.
The 2-, 3- and 4-year-olds have a weekly music class with faith-based and children’s songs, using movement and musical instruments. They also have weekly chapel service with faith-based songs and stories, along with learning monthly Bible verses. The Dayschool has 3 separate areas for outside play: one for infants, one for creepers and toddlers and one for the 2-, 3- and 4- year-olds. Plus, there’s access to the church’s gym in bad weather.
Optional enrichment classes offered for 2-, 3-, and 4-year-old classes are:
• Dance and tumbling – through Upstate Dance (2-year-old boys, girls 2-4)
• Gymnastics – through Electric City Gymnastics
• Computer Pals (3- and 4-year-olds boys and girls)
