From the Director:
Our teachers communicate and listen carefully to children's responses. Conversations help children build their vocabulary and writing skills. Small class sizes allow us to provide lots of individual care. We understand that children develop at their own rate. Children in our program learn to respect others, appreciate the world in which they live, and establish self-confidence. They leave our school with a strong foundation on which to build their academic future.
As caregivers and teachers of young children, the staff of First Friends Preschool is required to meet all state and local requirements.
The main objective of the program is to provide a positive and inclusive Christian atmosphere for all children. Based on the theory that children learn through play, we provide classroom routines that encourage active involvement, meaningful experimentation, and reinforcement through repetition. Our children have the opportunity to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually to their fullest potential.
