In 1966 The First Presbyterian Church of Carbondale established this preschool in the belief that multicultural heritages and a wide variety of social and educational experiences provide a great stimulus to the growth of a child's mind and character. Our preschool offers children objectives they can handle successfully and social situations into which they can learn to fit comfortably. The child who has experienced success in preschool can enter the larger world of school and community with self-confidence. We believe that the experience of preschool will be more valuable if we can bring together children of different backgrounds. We hope school parents will actively support these principles outside the School and will join us in seeking new ways to implement them.
The purpose of the Presbyterian Preschool is to offer the finest educational experiences which will enable the child to grow emotionally, socially, spiritually, physically, and intellectually. We strive to provide a positive first school experience.
