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

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.

Being a first time mother of two year old twins, I wanted to make sure that the preschool I chose for them was perfect. This is our first year at Abiding Presence Preschool, and it feels more than perfect; it feels like family. I have been so pleased with the teachers, staff and overall feel of the school. We started the year in the half-day two year old program, and loved it so much that I signed them up to finish the year doing the full day! My kids are always so excited t o see Ms. Schulz and Miss Sharon (which makes me leaving them here so much easier, knowing that they love their teachers so much!) and they run into the arms of the director, Miss Julie, EVERY morning!! Every day I look forward to opening my kids’ folders and seeing what project they did, and I love how excited they are about learning so many new things. Thanks to Abiding Presence Preschool, my kids are flourishing socially and intellectually. I am so thankful for following my intuition and going with APLC!
