Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Faith Friends Preschool and Learning Center provides a Christian atmosphere to facilitate children's social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth. We respect each child as an individual, growing and developing in their own way. We encourage creativity, independent choice, responsibility, self-control, and the development of a positive self-image.
Religion and cultural values shall be shared with children through stories, songs and simple prayer. All children are accepted without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
