The First Presbyterian Day School was established in 1984 and serves working parents in our community. We are open year round from 7:45am-5:30pm with our school year beginning each August.  Tuition includes two healthy snacks and a nutritional, well-balanced lunch each day.  The Day School is accredited by the National Association of the Education of the Young Child and is a Model Site for First Steps of South Carolina.

The school provides a safe, healthy and creative learning environment for children ages 2, 3 and 4 years from diverse backgrounds whose parents are employed in our community.  We actively seek families who need tuition assistance, particularly single parents.  Our well-educated staff creates a loving and trusting Christian atmosphere in which children and parents feel valued and competent.      

The curriculum for The First Presbyterian Day School is based upon the South Carolina Early Learning Standards.  These standards are used as a framework to guide instruction and enhance student skills and knowledge.  The content areas of literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology are integrated into all areas of the classroom and teachers assess each child to ensure that learning objectives are met.

The Day School is a Reggio Emilia inspired school.  It is governed by the ideas that very young children are competent and capable learners and promotes independence.  The curriculum emerges following the lead of the children and their interests as they explore and discover through a long term project approach to learning. The program flourishes on relationships among children, teachers, parents and the environment. 

Staff members support each child and the development of their creative, social and intellectual potential.  We focus on building meaningful relationships with parents and coordinate child-rearing practices and expectations.
