About Us

The philosophy of First Pres Nursery School is to help infants and toddlers feel happy and secure at church, learn, grow and know that God loves them. We provide opportunities for their spiritual, social, and developmental growth through play activities in a loving Christian environment. FPNS strives to provide these opportunities through arts and crafts, singing, biblical curriculum and age appropriate free play.

Our staff has a strong Christian foundation, they are loving, caring and nurturing. Each staff member has been screened through the Central Registry Check, finger-printed, and completed a drug screening. Since we are a registered childcare center, each caregiver takes 15 hours of continuing education classes every year in child growth and development, health and safety as well as curriculum. The Director is also required to take 20 hours of continuing education classes every year. Additionally every FPNS employee takes the “Stewards of Children” child protection course and we strive for 100% staff training in CPR and First Aid.

We've developed COVID-19 policies and procedures based on information from the CDC and SCDHEC regarding these 4 actions: promoting behavior to reduce spread, maintaining healthy environments, maintaining healthy operations, and preparing for when someone becomes sick.
