Growing Tree Preschool & Kindergarten

Registration Dates         Registration Policies


Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church Growing Tree Preschool and Kindergarten. It is our purpose to provide a happy and stimulating environment where each child is able to reach his or her potential for social, emotional, and physical growth. This program emphasizes total development of young children by providing them with fundamental experiences in which to grow. We look forward to growing with you and your child in a loving and learning Christian school.


Vision Statement and Goals

Our Vision for the Growing Tree is that it will serve as a ministry to all children, all denominations and all races teaching them the love of God, motivating them spiritually, challenging them academically, instructing them physically, and encouraging them emotionally.

Our Goal is not only will the Growing Tree be known for its ministry, but will also be considered the leading independent preschool in the Myrtle Beach area. Our curriculum will empower our children so that they are more than ready for the tests and challenges of first grade and life.



The school is administered by the Session of the Church, the Board of Directors of the school, and the Growing Tree Director. The program is actively supported as part of the children and outreach ministries of the church.
