We believe children must feel loved and approved of for themselves.  We respond to the needs of children by providing a success-oriented environment in which positive words and actions encourage each child to ask questions and to make choices, to grow in self-confidence and self-control, to develop respect for self and others, and to feel a joy in and curiosity for learning.

Mission Statement

“To nurture the social, emotional, educational and spiritual growth of each child in a loving Christian environment”.

Worthington Presbyterian Preschool (WPPS) was established as an outreach program of Worthington Presbyterian Church in 1965. WPPS is a non-profit organization governed by the Preschool Committee and responsible to the Pastor for Discipleship. Many of our teachers have been with us for more than ten years, which is a testament of the stable, high-quality environment and dedication of these early childhood professionals to WPPS.

The school serves children ages three - five and their families. More than 120 children attend classes annually in five classrooms. Half-day, two, three, and four-day programs are available. The school is in operation September - May and features a developmentally appropriate curriculum, focusing on socialization skills and learning in a success-oriented environment. For more program details, check out our links on tuition, procedures and school calendar.

WPPS is licensed by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.
Registration for 2023-24 is open.  All paperwork will be completed through our online registration system, 5 Star. Please follow the "Registration Instructions" below and contact us if you need assistance.

I feel like the preschool community has supported me in my development as a parent in addition to helping my child grow and learn. When I talk about preschools with my friends, I always mention this and we agree that WPPS is unique in that way.  I love the programs here and the pleasant, friendly community, and I am so blessed that WPPS has been good for our entire family.

WPPS is such a special place.  It has been an incredible positive four years here for both of our children.  WPPS nurtures the perfect balance of play and learning outcomes.
