At the Palma Ceia Presbyterian Preschool, we are blessed with an abundance of children whose parents wish to enroll them. Because of this, we are having to make some difficult decisions. For several important reasons, we must suspend the one year old class for the school year 2020-2021. We apologize for any difficulties this causes our families, and are working to make changes. We will update parents as needs and capabilities evolve.
We are sending this communication now so that we can be transparent with you, and so that, for those of you whose children will require out of home child care, you can plan for those arrangements well ahead of the need.
With compassionate care,
The Palma Ceia Presbyterian Preschool is an early childhood program of national distinction enfolded into the life and mission of the Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church. Established in 1979 as an early education outreach to children with special need of support, PCPC Preschool still strives to serve every child with excellence.
“All of the things we are teaching our students to do, they are doing there.”
– Dr. Patricia O’Grady, University of Tampa Education professor
The preschool was founded by its current director, Nancy Little, in 1979, and has been recognized through both regional and national awards as the best model of its kind. In its over thirty years, the graduates of the preschool have successfully been accepted to and thrived at all of the private and public schools in the area.
Palma Ceia Presbyterian Preschool supports the learning, social, relational and spiritual needs of children in a Christian part day inclusive early childhood education program. Typically developing children play and learn with developmentally challenged children in a family mirroring the family of God. Employing the highest standards of quality and best practices, PCPC Preschool seeks to model a joyful and playful learning community for all enrolled children.
The Palma Ceia Presbyterian Preschool admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
