Upper Octorara Presbyterian Church Preschool     1121 Octorara Trail,  Parkesburg, PA 19365


This is my son's second year at UOPC Pre-School. I am very pleased with his experiences both academically and socially. The curriculum is age appropriate and geared for Kindergarten readiness. In addition, Ms. Stephanie, a Pennsylvania certified Biology teacher, engages the children in fun science lessons and discussions throughout the year, while Ms. Pam, a UOPC veteran, connects the daily lesson into unique crafts for the children. I also like that my son is exposed to our family's Christian faith through stories, songs and activities. But if you were to ask my son what is his favorite part of pre-school, he would say outside recess at the playground, Lunch Bunch, and ringing the big school bell!

I have had the privilege of having two children attend UOPC Preschool. Both experiences have been amazing!   After many tours elsewhere, we are so pleased to have chosen UOPC Preschool. The staff, including the director,  is extremely kind, helpful, and child-centered . The curriculum is not only educational, but fun! I would recommend UOPC for all preschool needs; in fact I look forward to sending my last child!

We LOVE UOPC Preschool! Initially, we had our older daughter enrolled in another local preschool program. It was "okay", but basically we felt like we were paying for a "play date". Not being entirely satisfied, we contacted UOPC Preschool for information and a tour. We were immediately impressed with the passion, enthusiasm, love and experience that the Director and entire staff have. Additionally, we were amazed with the level of knowledge and contact they have with local school districts to help ensure that the children are "kindergarten ready". After having two daughters attend UOPC Preschool I can honestly say they offer a well balanced approach that includes fun and play, while at the same time offering a curriculum that prepares them for Kindergarten.
