Murrysville Presbyterian Preschool (MPP) began in 1951 as a Kindergarten and has evolved into one of the finest preschools in the Murrysville area. We are a nonprofit and nondenominational school that is run by the Preschool Committee (a sub-committee of the Christian Education Committee of First Presbyterian Church). Our teachers are eager to show Christ’s love by engaging the children, who enter their classrooms and their lives, with playful learning styles.

All MPP classes are taught by teachers with a bachelor’s degree in either education or child development, each teacher has a classroom assistant for each classroom.

MPP’s goals are to provide a balance of intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, and physical growth in each child. Each class pursues these goals in different age appropriate ways.

Meeting Our Goals

Intellectual Goals: Classrooms are geared toward the exploration of real objects, role playing, repetition, problem solving, and sharing. Field trips are scheduled throughout the year to enhance curriculum. Music is a part of our daily routine for learning.

Emotional Goals: We provide a safe and secure place where each child feels accepted, respected, and encouraged to learn more about themselves and the world around them.

Social Goals: Our environment of planned activities and the work of play foster interaction with adults and other children. This encourages respect, empathy, and cooperation as children acquire skills in communication and problem solving.

Spiritual Goals: We have a special church member come weekly to share time with the children in music and sometimes story reading. The teachers and aides provide the scaffolding for a child’s faith to develop through teachable moments and prayers.

Physical Goals: In addition to our large grassy field and playground, we provide a variety of equipment, activities, and opportunities for using large and small muscles, developing each child’s motor skills and physical development.
