At the First Presbyterian Church Preschool, we provide meaningful learning experiences within a Christian atmosphere. Our program is designed to foster your child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development. All classes are taught by college educated, state certified teachers and a teacher’s assistant. All staff are fingerprinted and have had background checks completed. Class size is limited to 12 children in the 3 Year Old Program and 14 children in the 4 Year Old Program.
Our program consists of art, music and language activities aimed at improving listening skills, communication skills and self-expression. A variety of play situations are offered to encourage socialization and cooperative play. Included in our daily schedule are snack time and outdoor play (weather permitting). Parents are provided with informative newsletters and children’s skills are assessed twice a year.
Our school occupies three spacious rooms in the Christian Education Building of the First Presbyterian Church of Manasquan. We provide an enclosed playground completed in 2004 and a bike riding area. Bathroom facilities are within a few feet of the classrooms. Children are accompanied by teachers when using these facilities. Bathrooms have an automatic flush for sanitary purposes. Surveillance cameras are located outside our building for security purposes.
