The Lewistown Presbyterian Church Preschool provides Nursery School and Preschool Programs which have earned a reputation for excellence in their 50-year history. Incorporating the latest understanding of childhood development, current expectations of kindergarten programs, and innovative ways to teach children about the love of God we seek to serve children and families by guiding children in a loving and nurturing environment. While incorporating the kindergarten standards of the Mifflin County School District into our program, our teachers and students work together toward building a strong educational foundation. In preparation for kindergarten, preschool takes on a more structured approach as compared to nursery school. Preschool students focus on the development of fine motor skills involving drawing, cutting, and gluing. Both Nursery School and Preschool students work on social skills through the use of dramatic play with other children. As the year continues, children will move on to name writing, number and letter recognition, phonetic awareness, and simple mathematical concepts. Preschool students are given opportunities for field trips to places such as the Mifflin County Library, United Fire Company, and the Ice Festival. A visit from Santa and perhaps a pet or two, vision testing by the Blind Association, and a dental presentation add more facets to our program at Lewistown Presbyterian Church. At year’s end, children have the occasion to take a bus ride to visit a Mifflin County kindergarten classroom. Finally, graduation will be held for preschoolers as they have prepared for kindergarten.
Our preschool students are able to utilize special services provided free of charge through the Tuscarora Intermediate Unit. An example of this is weekly speech and language services. Preschool classes are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with separate sessions being held each morning and afternoon.
