Pre-School/Pre-K Classes

Friends Childcare has two preschool classrooms:

• Caterpillars: Younger Preschool Classroom (2.9-4 Years)
• Butterflies: Older Pre-K Classroom (4-5 Years)

We believe in a balanced literacy approach and do this by integrating letters, words, and sounds into all of our large group, small group, and free choice activities. Our classrooms use a combination of child-initiated and teacher-initiated learning strategies. We believe that each child should be given materials and tools to foster their creativity and self-expression throughout the day.

Once children transition into our Pre-School classroom, we focus more on kindergarten readiness. In both classrooms, we strive to meet the needs of each child by providing a curriculum that is both stimulating and challenging for all learning levels and styles.

Readying Your Child for School
