Friends Center for Children

FCFC believes that children learn best through a child-centered, hands on learning experience. As a result, we embrace a rich, multi-dimensional environment. At the same time, we recognize individual development needs and believe that children grow the most in a safe, nurturing, peaceful atmosphere. We build our curriculum upon each interaction strive to support and encourage each child’s social, emotional, ethical, cognitive, physical and language development. We are a cooperative program. Our commitment to cooperative education is based on the belief that families, schools and communities gain unique benefits by parents’ active involvement in the school.
