Childhood should be a journey, not a race.
First Congregational Preschool, Inc. is a Nationally Accredited, State-Licensed, non-denominational, cooperative nursery. Our aim is to promote the full development of children - socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually.
|What We Do||Our program is
designed to develop the basic skills and creativity of children through
a wide variety of activities. Each day includes a full schedule of
storytelling and language development, games, rhythmical experiences,
play acting, are work and computers. The program includes frequent
projects in science, math and music. Each week the children take
part in a food project. In addition, we go on many field trips.
