The First Presbyterian Playschool is a Jackson tradition since 1971. Playschool operates as a licensed partial-day program for two through five-year-olds. Its purpose is to provide an opportunity for preschool children to participate in a structured educational program with the companionship of their peers in a faith-based environment scaled to their needs under trained supervision.
There are six teachers, who use their collective 100 years of early childhood experience, to create a developmentally appropriate environment where your child becomes confident in his/her own abilities and has acquired the cognitive, social and emotional skills to be successful in Kindergarten. In addition, teachers attend eighteen to twenty-one hours of workshops yearly. All teachers are certified in CPR, AED and First Aid. The children participate in child-directed play and activities. The curriculum includes PEP (Primary Educational Program), Process Phonics, Handwriting without Tears, Mr. P Mooney and Spanish Vocabulary.
Playschool serves children ages 2-5 years old (September through May.)
