Day in the Life

General School Mission

SFLP is a developmentally appropriate early childhood program with an age appropriate curriculum based on our belief that children learn best through direct involvement with people and hands-on experiences.

We strive to foster and develop each child's potential to it's fullest by providing age and developmentally appropriate activities. Through these activities the child will be given the opportunity to succeed and thus encourage the development of a positive self-concept.
