Our kids spend 12+ years going to school – Let’s fill their first school experiences with fun, learning and adventures.
Play is the highest form of research – Albert Einstein
At First Friends, we believe that children have a natural and innate urge to learn and discover the world around them. What we strive to facilitate is a safe environment for children to ask questions, find answers, experiment, play and imagine. We want our students to become life-long learners and explorers. Children who are ready and excited for school and who will continue to ask important questions and seek answers throughout their lives.
Parents tell us they love our open door policy and that they feel welcome and proud when joining their child’s class. We have creative play based programs that integrate important structural and educational elements which increase with each year of preschool. Our Little Learners class (3 year olds) has different expectations and demands than our Preschool class (4 year olds). Kids need to grow at their own pace and it is important that their activities and the demands placed on them are age appropriate, yet still challenging.
We ensure that students are meeting their milestones by working with them one on one or in small groups every single class which helps them to build confidence in their skills and encourages their love for learning. Our teachers complete two progress reports throughout each year to help parents to see the growth and progress that each child makes. Every child will master their skills at a different rate and we are here to support each of them on their journey not force them into learning.
Our classroom is one of our biggest tools. Sure, our space isn’t very big, but we have found a variety of ways to make it exactly what our students need and they love to contribute their ideas to help us create new and exciting places full of adventures and imagination.
