Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Christian Philosophy
We are intentionally a family life program, not simply a preschool or child care facility. Within all of our programs we try to give children and parents an opportunity to grow in a way that will benefit the entire family.
We help children develop an attitude of love and respect for themselves as individuals and to be concerned for others. We encourage them to understand the world as created and loved by God. All this contributes to their sense of wonder and curiosity leading them to experience the joy of learning for its own reward.
As a Christian organization, the central events of our faith heritage are related through our family celebrations at Christmas and Easter. Various media are utilized to explore the wonderful world that God has given us. The Family Life Program wants children to experience both the church and the world as places where God's love and care are revealed to them personally in their relationships with others.
The Family Life Preschool and Daycare of the First Congregational Church has been in continuous operation since 1961.
