Helping your child grow through play.

About First Presbyterian Weekday Preschool, Marietta Georgia

Our Preschool began in 1963 to provide a strong, faith-based foundation for Marietta children. We’ve upheld that mission since then, blending tradition with more contemporary learning styles to make a lasting impact on each child in our care.

Our dedicated staff members strive to foster a lifelong curiosity and love of learning by teaching little ones an appreciation for their world, kindness toward each other and a closeness to God. Our play-based program offers low student-teacher ratios and hands-on experiences in a loving, nurturing classroom environment.

More on our curriculum

FPC Weekday Preschool has long used the play-based program, WEE Learn, as a foundation for our curriculum. Within that framework, our experienced teachers tailor their units to meet the needs and interests of their children. Through learning centers, small and large group activities and individual instruction, teachers present developmentally appropriate content.

In addition to WEE Learn, we offer Zoo-phonics beginning in our three-year-old classes to supplement letter identification and phonetic awareness in a fun, playful way. Zoo-phonics engages the children’s senses while teaching through physical games and activities.

We want to help kids develop their complete selves, so we take a holistic approach to help each child grow…

Socially: to help kids learn how to make new friends and communicate effectively.

Emotionally: to develop self-esteem and adaptability in new situations.

Spiritually: to understand God’s love and appreciate the beauty of his creations.

Academically: to master the foundations of language, reading and math.

Creatively: to use art as a form of expression through activities, music and movement.

Physically: to use movement class and playground time to enhance physical development, which play a critical role in a child’s learning.
