CPP Staff & Facilities

preschool staff

Cary Presbyterian Preschool's staff brings together a wonderful group of dedicated teachers who are with us because they love working with young children. They all meet or exceed teaching requirements outlined by the state. Several have had their own children in the program, and most stay with us year after year. The staff is trained annually in CPR and First Aid, and all participate in regular classes and workshops to keep themselves up to date with new ideas and teaching methods.
They work hard to make their classrooms inviting and the curriculum appropriate yet challenging. Regular assessments of the children are done to make sure they are on track developmentally.
We work closely with Wake County’s Project Enlightenment, which offers services for children up to age 5, in the event that additional evaluations and services are needed.


Our state licensed facilities are located within Cary Presbyterian Church in a wooded section of downtown Cary. The education building was renovated in 2003, and the preschool is on the ground level. Each classroom has its own “pint-sized” bathroom, an outside door leading to the playground, and areas where children can learn and explore. Classroom activities can extend to an outdoor learning area along side the building. There is a separate room for music classes and the library.
Our fenced-in playground is large and partially shaded by mature trees. It includes a commercial grade climbing structure, several smaller structures for the smallest children, swings, picnic tables, and a court for riding toys. There are gardens and natural areas for learning about the environment. The children have time each day for outdoor activities, and if the weather is a problem, we have access to the church’s Fellowship Hall.
