Welcome to Friends Schoolhouse
THE WHOLE CHILD
|IN A CHILD'S TIME||FLEXIBILITY FOR FAMILIES|
Our curriculum is designed to recognize and respect each individual's style of learning, taking into account the whole child - head, hands, and heart.
Children engage in activities that help them discover and develop their natural interests and innate strengths. From using "kid writing" to create and present a puppet show, to building a tower with blocks, paper and yarn, or making "soup" for a family of imaginary wee folk, children are encouraged to express themselves in a variety of ways.
Teachers promote self-confidence and esteem by celebrating the achievements and success of all students.
Our goal is to enrich the lives
of young children by helping them develop physical and emotional independence, and natural curiosity.
Friends Schoolhouse is where learning happens in a child's time, as they express themselves through meaningful work, sharing with friends.
Drawing from an array of educational philosophies, children explore language, logical thinking and number relationships, cause and effect, and social skills through teacher-supported play and developmentally-appropriate "lessons."
Recognizing that the preschool setting is often the child's first experience outside the familiarity of the home, our flexible schedule allows families to determine the best situation for their child.
Enrollment is open
to families of children ages 3 - 5.
