The Preschool and Kindergarten programs at 1st Presbyterian Church in Tupelo are quality programs designed with the whole child in mind. At our school, children are valued just as they are, and we take our responsibility to nurture and encourage them towards their full potential very seriously. Our God-centered curriculum incorporates language skills, literature study, art and music appreciation, social studies units, science study units, math skills, and the all important social skills development encouraged through free play, physical exercise, group games, and one-on-one interaction. The goal of our educational model is to help children develop mentally, physically, socially, morally, and academically through an age-appropriate curriculum. Our preschool age students are well-prepared for kindergarten, and our kindergarten students are well-prepared for first grade.For further information, please contact the church office at 842-5681 and ask to speak to our director Sunny Waters. Classes are available for children ages 2 (as of Sept. 1) through kindergarten. Our school year follows the Tupelo Public School District calendar with the exception of our opening (September rather than August) and our closing (usually 1 to 2 weeks before the end of the TPSD year).
