Guided by a child-centered, Christian philosophy of education, our Weekday School helps children become better thinkers, doers, and believers. This positive, secure environment encourages sharing, honesty, kindness, fair play, tolerance, and good choices. Students interact with children and adults, and develop strong communication skills. They are taught at their personal level of readiness, with classes based on their needs and interests.
We believe that our first responsibility is to the needs of children – for love, self-respect, and experience with caring teachers. We are committed to providing a positive and secure environment that encourages sharing, honesty, kindness, fair play, tolerance, and good choices. We believe that each child should come to know that God loves him or her unconditionally as a unique creation: a child of God.
First Presbyterian Church WDS welcomes students of any race, religion, national or ethnic background.
Our philosophy supports program goals designed to develop a child's full potential – intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically. By nurturing, we attempt to help children adjust to new situations, to interact with other children and adults in ever-more effective ways, to communicate their developing knowledge and values skillfully and confidently, and to develop a wide-range of physical skills. In addition, we offer enrichment classes in:

All of our outstanding teachers are trained in CPR and First Aid, and love seeing your child each day!
