Goals & Philosophy

Family Preschool believes that it takes a village to raise a child.

Our non-profit, non-sectarian, non-discriminatory environment focuses on supporting both children and parents as they learn and grow.

We help preschool-aged children develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually by providing safe, interesting and challenging play with other children of similar ages.

We help parents by connecting them with a community of local parents,  while supporting and guiding them through the trials and tribulations of parenthood. We are extremely proud of the friendships created by both children and adults at FPS and we hear many  stories of the life-long connections made on the FPS playground.  

In the late 1980’s both of my children went to Family Preschool and we are still friends with many of the families we met. In fact, Jennifer was the Matron of Honor in the wedding of her best friend from the three-year-old class! Today, I have the privilege of taking my two grandchildren to Family Preschool and experiencing the benefits of the school once again!

Family Preschool considers the enrollment of children with special needs on an individual basis given the capabilities of our staff and the program’s social and academic goals. Special circumstances within individual families may be brought to the attention of the enrollment chairpersons and the director for consideration.
