Abiding Presence Preschool is located at 4 Trescott Path in Fort Salonga, NY

(at the intersection of Route 25a and Sunken Meadow Road; a half a mile west of the Sunken Meadow Parkway)


About Our Curriculum

Abiding Presence uses a theme based curriculum, “All About Preschoolers,” developed by Dr. Debby Cryer,  a leading expert in the field of early childhood.  The curriculum is approved by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and has been developed just for preschoolers!   Aligned with New York State learning standards, it encourages learning through enriched play, reinforces skill development, and is academically strong, including science, math, and social studies. 

We follow Five Guided Principles:

  • understand how children learn

  • understand the fundamentals of child development

  • trust children

  • respect children as individuals

  • share knowledge with children

Our goal is to prepare children for Kindergarten and the years beyond, working with the expectations of the area school districts. Skills of independence, self-regulation, language and literacy are essential, along with preschool basics. Additionally, building self-confidence, self-worth, and character traits of Christian caring and sharing are integral to our approach.

our classrooms and playground

Our spacious, well-equipped classrooms allow each child to explore a variety of fun, learning materials while developing their fine motor skills. An outdoor playground with age appropriate equipment is used on a daily basis. During inclement weather, a large, multi-purpose room (Good Shepherd Hall) provides the children with a large area for ball games, bicycle riding and gross motor skills development.

The biggest blessing to our family this school year was enrolling my 4-year old daughter in Abiding Presence Preschool. Our daughter loves her school, her teachers and her friends. The teachers are excellent! They encourage independence and have helped my daughter be more than ready for kindergarten. The director, is an incredible leader and runs a wonderful program. The entire team work with the kids with so much patience and love! I am deeply grateful for the trust they continuously inspire in me as I leave the most precious piece of me in their care. My only regret is not finding APLC Preschool sooner!
