First Presbyterian Church established the Preschool in 1970 as a service to the community. It is a nonprofit organization supported entirely by tuition. It is operated on a nondiscriminatory basis offering equal treatment and access to services without regard to race, color, or religion. The School is accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs, a division of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and is licensed by the California State Department of Social Services.
Particular attention is given to qualified leadership and staff. Early childhood education is a highly specialized field. A good preschool program takes careful planning, skill and knowledge.
