Weekday Preschool Center
The Weekday Preschool Center (WPC) at First Presbyterian was established in 1946 with one class of kindergartners. Since opening our doors, we have grown to serve 120 children with a faculty of 20, and we are now an NAEYC accredited school. If you are new to WPC, check out our resources for new students and families.
The Weekday Preschool Center is a morning preschool program-serving infants age 2 months through children in private kindergarten. Research tells us that young children learn the most through play and by engaging in hands-on activities and positive interactions with their loved ones, teachers, and peers.
We give children an exciting learning environment in a Christian atmosphere so they begin to feel comfortable in a school setting and develop a life-long love for learning.
Educated, experienced, and caring teachers implement a developmentally appropriate curriculum. We have an inclusive, respectful environment and welcome diversity in culture, religion, race, gender and ability.
We strive to provide the best possible early childhood program in Greensboro, following guidelines set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has accredited Weekday Preschool Center at First Presbyterian Church! (View our certificate.)
Since 1985, NAEYC has offered a national, voluntary accreditation system to set professional standards for early childhood education programs, and to help families identify high-quality programs.
Today, NAEYC Accreditation represents the mark of quality in early childhood education. More than 7,000 child care programs, preschools, early learning centers, and other center- or school-based early childhood education programs are currently NAEYC-Accredited. These programs provide high quality care and education to nearly one million young children in the United States, its territories, and programs affiliated with the United States Department of Defense.
