First Reformed opens new preschool

First Reformed Church in Landis will open a new preschool Sept. 6. The preschool will include 2- and 3-years-olds only during the first year of operation. Two-year-olds will attend on Tuesday and Thursday and 3-year-olds will attend on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The school will be open for mornings only. Plans are to add a 4-year-old class next year.
The preschool will be open to church members as well as the community. The staff will be led by Risa Little and Gina Cochran. Little and Cochran have 28 years of experience in the preschool environment, and eight years teaching together.
A $25,000 Cannon Foundation grant will be used for playground equipment, furniture, laptop computer, and a Smart Table. A Smart Table is the first multi-touch, multi-user interactive center for use in early education environments. It allows several students to work together on the same surface, while at the same time developing cognitive, social and fine motor skills.
The preschool will be housed in a church addition that was built in 2005. While backed by the church, the preschool intends to be self-supporting. The mission of First Reformed Church is ěConnecting to Jesus Christ, Connecting to each other, and Connecting to the world.î The preschool program is an avenue for the church to connect to the community and have a positive influence on children and families.
For more information on the First Reformed Church Preschool, contact Gay W. Roberts at 704-796-6966, the church office at 704-857-7119 or visit www.firstreformedoflandis.org
