ABOUT

 

Our Mission: Teaching kids to love God with their minds, bodies, and spirits.

At Friendly, we focus on three areas while helping little people grow: Mind, Body, and Spirit. We follow a curriculum-based program that includes both structured and free play activities.


With our minds, we are learning throughout our entire day. From using FUNdations and learning our alphabet to flexing our STEM muscles, our minds are engaged within times of Discovery, Explore, and Play.


With our bodies, we are moving. Recreation times are a vital part of our daily schedule – either outdoors on the playground or indoors with games and organized play. Stretch N’ Grow and Tuesday Movement also help us engage our bodies.


With our spirits, we are learning to love Jesus and follow Him. Every morning we start our day with Bible songs, a lesson, an activity, and, of course, prayer.

Bible

The Bible is God's message to us.  We believe all we need to know is in His Word and aspire to create a love for Jesus in each of our children's hearts.

As part of our curriculum we:

- Memorize Bible verses monthly

- Discuss which choices make God happy and how He gives us multiple chances

- Teach Bible songs and stories

- Pray many times throughout the day

Resource

Our Reading resource program is a one on one session for Pre-kinder students who need extra help learning letter sounds, letter recognition and letter formation skills.  This is a collaborative program between parents, teachers and the administration. If extra assistance for kindergarten preparedness is needed, we jointly set individual goals. Our kiddos love resource.
