First Christian Preschool is a non-profit school sponsored by First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Paducah, Kentucky.

Our facility is licensed by the state of Kentucky with certified teachers in every classroom.

FCC's  program began in the early 70's with an in-house kindergarten. When kindergarten was moved into the public schools, a four-year-old class was added. Demand has allowed us to expand through the years and we now offer classes for 2,3,4 and 5 year olds.

First Christian Church also offers a Toddlers-N-Training (TNT) / Mother's Day Out program that is in session on Wednesdays from 9:00 to 2:30 for children one year of age.

Early childhood education is very important, and we feel that through interaction with other children, guided by a loving teacher, socialization skills can be improved, making their entire school experience more successful.

Our philosophy is that every child is lovable and they should leave our school knowing they are loved. We also are in constant contact with local kindergarten teachers to be sure our children are prepared for success when they leave our program.

Schedule of Classes: 

  • Wednesday and/or Friday - Two Year Old Class
  • Tuesday & Thursday - Three Year Old Class (2 classes)
  • Monday, Wed, Friday - Four Year Old Class (1 class)
  • Monday through Friday - Pre-K Class (1 class)

Please refer to the registration information sheet to see days and times for optional extended care for each age in our Preschool Enrichment Program (PEP Club).
