School Notes

  • The foundational principle of Friends is to share our faith in God (our creator), His Word, His Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit with the children and families we have  serve. Furthermore, it is our responsibility to provide an environment that fosters spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual, and physical growth through Biblical materials, literature, language development, math concepts, art, music, drama, and physical activities.Our program incorporates the Montessori philosophy with a Christian base. We observe the child to determine his/her interests and needs. We utilize the introduction of practical life, sensorial, language and math materials/activities to promote socialization and learning.   We also, strive to assist each child in gaining the skills needed to become independent and creative. Our goal is to move our students to the next level of learning.We Provide:   Parent/Tot classes, Pre-school, Pre-Kindergarten, Young-five's full or day sessions,   Kindergarten classes are scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with full days.  We have half days that begin at 9:00 am and end at 11:30 am or begin at 12:30 pm and end at  3:00 pm.  Our full day program runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
