The Presbyterian Day School (PDS) is a historic preschool and mission of Memorial Presbyterian Church in downtown St. Augustine.  Since 1955, PDS has excelled in providing outstanding early childhood education to preschool students.

PDS provides a Christian atmosphere in which students learn cognitively, grow socially, and receive preparation to help them succeed in kindergarten and beyond.  The knowledgeable and experienced teaching staff engages the curiosity and fosters the self-confidence of each child in the classroom.

PDS students attend chapel services, led by Memorial Presbyterian Church pastors and staff, each week.  Chapel services help children learn that they are created, loved, and cared for by God and that they are called to love their neighbors as themselves.
