Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"As educators we feel it is imperative to communicate the goals of First School. Our standards are high but realistic. Our program is designed to give your child a solid academic foundation. In addition to the academic approach we develop your children's social skills. Combining our emphasis on academic and social skills leads to well-balanced results. Your child will be academically prepared and socially adjusted to confront the challenges they will face in the elementary school years.

We have designed a stimulating and creative atmosphere. Our small class size will encourage your child to listen, learn and interact with our skilled staff. Each class is tailored for your children's specific age. In addition to embarking on an education through a structured program your child will learn the important skill of socialization among his or her peers. All activities are exciting learning experiences. As an added plus First School is offering extracurricular afternoon activities. We have licensed ourselves to care for children up to 12 years of age so that we can offer after school latch-key services to your family as your children grow older. First School has been created to meet the great community need for quality full-time preschool and child care.

Our educational program recognizes the child's family's as a necessary partner in the education process. We are committed to working with parents to build a strong academic, developmental, and social foundation for their children.
