For nearly 50 years, Gastonia's First Presbyterian Church has offered developmentally appropriate Christian Early Childhood Education for area children as an outreach ministry, extending the hand of God to our community. We feel a child's growth in the Christian faith is best nurtured by loving adults who are themselves persons of faith.
Presbyterian Weekday School (PWS) offered preschool, pre-K and kindergarten programs serving children between the ages two through six. PWS is dedicated to top quality care and early childhood education using research based practices.
Our staff adheres to the standards of the National Accreditation Commision and uses the Creative Curriculum and North Carolina Standard Course of Study. Teachers use their understanding of child development to create a warm learning environment an dplan activities that meet each child at their current level of cognitive, language, physical, spiritual and social development.
We desire to:
- provide high quality learning in a safe and nurturing Christian environment
- offer a developmentally appropriate research based curriculum
- create a environment that encourages a lifelong pleasure ot learning.
We'd love to tell you more about PWS. By contacting the school office, we can schedule a time that would be convenient for you to visit. Nothing would please us more than to hear from you!
