About Us

Our Francis Burriss Day School at Lake Murray Presbyterian Church has roots going back to 1987 when Rev. Francis Burriss started the part time preschool at LMPC under the direction of Dede Elmore with twenty students.

Today our preschool has grown to over 150 children!  In 2015, a state-of-the-art facility was built to go with our excellent preschool program. The Day School is a ministry of Lake Murray Presbyterian Church, seeking to serve the children and parents by ministering to the whole child- body, mind, and soul.

The Day School serves children from infancy through age 5, in a loving and nurturing environment where they can safely explore the world around them. Our purpose at LMPC Day School is to give each child the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, and academically in a safe, loving, Christian atmosphere.  We strive to develop the whole child; physically, academically, spiritually, socially, intellectually, and emotionally to establish a strong foundation and encourage a love of learning.
