First Friends Daycare is a Home-Based Daycare.
We choose to remain small and centered around the home because we value our tightly knit relationships with our children and our parents.
We have two home-based sites within a short distance of one another.
Both of our sites uphold all the values and beliefs that make First Friends a safe and loving environment.
Each site is well staffed with workers who are dedicated and certified in all of the state requirements.
Though the two sites may be ran in their own unique way, each site follows a similar schedule and curriculum.
At First Friends Day Care, our focus is on a safe place for your children that is fully licensed and insured.
We have a bilingual staff that is CPR/ First Aid Certified.
Nutritious Home meals are provided.
