Founded in 1977, the Presbyterian Weekday Nursery School, now First Presbyterian Preschool, has been providing local children with a quality preschool experience in a Christian setting for 40 years. Located in the First Presbyterian Church of Valparaiso, Indiana, our program prepares children for a successful kindergarten experience by encouraging and broadening their horizons, developing new interests, stimulating exploration and creativity, and giving them the academic skills they need for success. We are a Mission of First Presbyterian Church of Valparaiso, and not-for-profit. Our mission is to provide a quality, affordable and nurturing preschool to our community. Because of our partnership and mission with the church, we are fortunate to be able to keep our rates low. There are spacious classrooms filled with a variety of activity centers as well as a full-sized gym for regular physical activity and large motor skill development. In addition to daily classroom activities, we also offer field trips, guest speakers, and holiday parties throughout the year.


All FPP classes provide a warm atmosphere and opportunities to grow in these areas:


  • Gain coordination and control of body.

  • Work and play happily and cooperatively with peers.

  • Acquire desirable habits and attitudes toward helping others.

  • Use imagination and develop originality.

  • Broaden interests and understanding of the world around them.

  • Appreciate simple aesthetic experiences through music, art and drama.

  • Acquire basic academic, personal, and social skills needed for kindergarten readiness.
