Peachtree Presbyterian Preschool was established in 1959 as a part of the outreach ministry of Peachtree Presbyterian Church. The Preschool was created to provide an early childhood education program of the highest quality, founded on a firm commitment to God and a dedication to the highest professional standards. A separately incorporated non-profit, charitable organization overseen by a Board of Trustees, the Preschool serves at the pleasure of the Session of the Peachtree Presbyterian Church. Now in its fifty-seventh year, the Preschool maintains its Christ centered mission in its service to families of Peachtree Presbyterian Church and the surrounding community. Admission is open to all children of both Church members and non-members, without regard to race, creed, sex or national origin.
Central to the Preschool's mission are its community outreach activities, which include support for The City of Refuge and Buckhead Christian Ministry. Additionally, the Preschool offers enrollment opportunities for neighborhood students through the Church's LaAmistad program and special needs students through the Inclusion program. Limited tuition assistance is available to families who demonstrate financial need.
The Preschool programs are keyed to the developmental milestones of its children, recognizing the uniqueness of each child and striving to meet his or her individual needs. The primary goal of the Preschool is to create an environment in which each child can grow spiritually, physically, socially, cognitively and emotionally and, as a result of his or her first learning experience, begin to develop a sense of wonder, an enjoyment of learning, and a positive attitude toward school.
