Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

When we first took our first child to FPS, we knew it was a well-run and nurturing place for our child, but we didn’t expect to form some of our most valuable friendships there, as well. Now, 14 years later, we still consider these other FPS parents some of our best friends. While our children were playing and doing the important work of childhood, we were forming bonds that would support us in our roles as parents. We will always be grateful for our time there.
