From the Beginning
At Friends of the Family Child Care Center, Preschool & Kindergarten, we’re proud to provide a caring and safe environment for your children. By following our mission, vision and values, we create a nurturing, stimulating and welcoming learning environment for all children.
We provide our students with the tools they need for future happiness and success. Our unique programs incorporate a variety of educational theories, while always keeping the child’s best interest in mind and and allowing for hands-on, experiential learning. Get in touch to learn more!
Learning Through Play
Creative arts are activities that actively engage children’s imagination through art, dance, dramatic play or theater, puppetry, and music. The creative arts engage children across all domains - cognitive, language, social, emotional, and physical. We use materials such as paint, markers, crayons, pencils, watercolor, chalk and paper. Here at FOTF we believe in getting messy and having fun!
Our Imaginative Play has been perfect for many families. When your child engages in pretend (or dramatic) play, he/she is actively experimenting with the social and emotional roles of life. Through cooperative play, your child learns how to take turns, share responsibility, and creatively problem-solve.
Time for outdoor play is diminishing, contributing to more sedentary lifestyles, disconnected from the natural world. FOTF recognizes the importance of outdoor play for young children's healthy growth. We transform outdoor educational practices and move from frequent indoor activities to a regular use of the outdoor environment.
Art, violin, Yoga, Spanish and technology classes are all included in our curriculum here at FOTF. Time spent creating and expressing artistically and musically is extremely important during the early childhood.
