Pre School Program

The Pre School Program is a ministry of the First Presbyterian Church of Eden, North Carolina. It is governed by the Session that has delegated the general oversight to the Pre School Committee. The Director, a paid staff member of the Church staff, will oversee the daily operations of the Pre School Program.

Mission

To provide a Christian atmosphere where each child will be able to grow spiritually, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
