Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Friends to Parents is strongly commited to the idea that a child is an unique individual with special developmental needs and interests which can be positively affected by a nuturing and enriching environment.

Activites are based on age differences in an effort to develop a child's individual potential. Our goal is to enhance each child's growth by:

providing a curriculum which will encourage a chid's potential.
encouraging parental involvement in the child's growth.
providing an atmosphere which will be conducive to individual growth.
providing a qualified and caring staff.
