In 1947 the former Mother’s Club of the Church established a kindergarten, which it conducted for 26 years. With the enactment of State legislation mandating public kindergartens, the Mother’s Club disbanded its kindergarten in June 1973. The present school was established in September 1973 as an educational mission of the Church. The name was changed in April 1974 to the Perry Park Preschool. The school is governed by a Preschool Committee which reports to the Board of Trustees of the Church and which serves as a liaison to the Church.
