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 uses a variety of learning curriculum for all ages. Children learn best when they’re having fun, and they learn by touching and doing.  These exciting programs engage your whole child  –  their eyes, ears, mouth, mind and body with visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning.

Creepers and Toddlers concentrate on numbers, colors and shapes using weekly themes.  Teachers in the Two and Three year old classes use Frog St. Press and Zoophonics.  The teachers in the Four year old classes use for instruction the South Carolina Early Learning Standards 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 Two, Three and Four year-olds have a weekly music class with faith-based and children’s songs, using movement and musical instruments. The children also enjoy a weekly Physical Education class to enhance their physical activity, strength and endurance.  Our weekly Chapel service includes faith-based songs and stories, along with introducing monthly Bible verses. The Dayschool has 3 separate areas for outside play: one for Infants, one for Creepers and Toddlers and one for the Two through Four year-olds. Plus there is access to the church’s gym in bad weather.

Our daycare hours are 7:20 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Monday-Friday.
Instructional hours are 8:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. for 2 – 4 year olds.
