The Children’s Center at First Presbyterian Church was opened on September 3, 1980, with five classrooms. Since then, the Children’s Center has adopted the mission to show the children, on a daily basis, aspects of Christian living and God’s love for each child through the teaching and example of the teachers, staff and members of the church staff.  It is because of the excellent staff and mission that the center has grown and become one of the best in San Antonio.

OUR VISION AND VALUES

We recognize that all children are God's unique creation. Our goal is to provide a safe place for children and their parents to discover God's world, and how it works. Additionally, we encourage our children to love others and make good choices as they grow. To do this our staff works together integrating the most basic Christian principles with a STEAM based curriculum to provide a safe and positive learning environment. Our teachers work to foster curiosity, critical thinking and healthy physical development through play, exploration, and by modeling good manners, hygiene and extreme generosity of spirit.  We believe this is a great benefit to the familis of our community and their children.
