Do you have an afternoon program, and can my child join if they attend another program in the mornings?

Yes, we do! From 12 - 3 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. You are welcome to enroll in Friends while attending other programs, too.

How long do children play outside?

As long as possible! We set up a rich environment outside and weather permitting, try to use the outdoor classroom as much as possible.

Why should I choose a play-based preschool?

Research shows that children learn best through play. We believe learning initiated by the child is much more impactful and brain-building than rote memorization or sitting down to complete worksheets. 

Do they follow a schedule?

Yes, even though we offer plenty of opportunities for free choice play throughout the day, we do follow a routine with an age-appropriate amount of transitions each day, so the children get the experience of moving through a schedule with their peers and teachers each day.

How do children get ready for kindergarten in a play-based program?

We offer a rich and engaging environment on a daily basis that offers opportunities to support each area of development in your child; emotional, social, cognitive, and physical. Along with this rich environment, we have fully qualified early childhood educators there to support and guide your child's development on a daily basis.
