Preschool

Come learn and grow with us

At Friendly House Preschool, our play-based curriculum is tailored to the needs of your child, with a focus on social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Plus, our program options are flexible to meet your family’s needs and budget, while offering nurturing and engaging preschool activities in a richly diverse environment.

COVID-19 Update

We still have a limited number of spaces open in both our Preschool program and School-Age Childcare program. Click here to register today. For information on COVID-19 rules for childcare and Early Childhood Education providers, click here.

Due to the number of families experiencing financial hardship during COVID-19, generous full and partial scholarships are available for families. We want to make safe and enriching childcare available to those that need it most—until we reach capacity, no one will be turned aware for inability to pay.

Parent Reviews

I loved this program, how welcome our family has felt. I love that we had such a small child-to-teacher ratio. The volunteer staff has been sweet and supportive as well. This program has far exceeded my expectations.
