A Diverse Group of Durham's Kids Growing Up Together

First Presbyterian Day School was first organized in 1970 by the First Presbyterian Church of Durham. We are a non-profit and non-sectarian organization.

From the start, our mission has been to provide top-quality childcare to a diverse group of Durham's children, including those in financial need. To fulfill our mission, we work to create a balance of families who pay private tuition and those whose tuition is subsidized by a variety of social service providers.

As a result, the Day School offers each child a warm and loving community, which is also remarkably diverse, fully integrating children of all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
