Pinecrest Presbyterian Church opened our Day School in 1962 as a mission to young children and their families in this area of Miami. We offer both Preschool and Kindergarten programs and are licensed through the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF). In the past several years we have upgraded our campus and expanded our facilities to meet the needs and expectations of our teachers and the children we serve. The school is currently operating at a licensed capacity of 282 students, although we prefer to provide a small enrollment and environment. We serve children 18 months – Kindergarten. We follow the Miami-Dade County school calendar and observe the same legal holidays, vacations, and teacher planning days.
Pinecrest Presbyterian Day School provides Day School and After-School Care Programs to help
each child develop to his or her maximum potential and receive the best education, care, and attention
possible. Our long-range goals include building a strong and positive self-image while helping to develop

All of our children participate in acts of kindness throughout the school year. Classes may make cards for residents at East Ridge Retirement Village to celebrate an event or bring some cheer. Each year children bring cans of soup in honor of the Souper Bowl and the soup is then given to a local homeless shelter or in 2016, to Ecuador Relief after the earthquake. Each year each family provides a new pair of children’s shoes which we then send off to an orphanage or refugee camp or disaster area. We have participated in Trike-a-Thons for St. Jude Children’s Hospital and other worthy causes as well. This church serves lunch at a shelter each month and we love to bring homemade cookies. Sometimes our classes bake them. Sometimes Day School families bake them and donate them.
