WHO WE SERVE
FPDS serves children from three months to four years of age. Our hours of operation are Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30am to 2:00pm.
The Early Years Program is designed for children three months to three years of age. This program includes daily activities which encourage growth in language, social, spiritual, cognitive, and motor development. Our low teacher/child ratio ensures personal attention and quality care. Parents have a two-day or four-day per week option. Two's and Young Three's will also participate in weekly Children's Chapel in late Fall and Spring.
The Preschool Program is highly recognized in our community and is well established. We have been in existence for more than 40 years. Our excellent program is designed to encourage children to have fun with their friends, learn new skills, be creative, play and develop their independence! Preschoolers also have the wonderful opportunity to attend Chapel every Wednesday. Our Preschoolers use their artistic creativity by finger painting, coloring, gluing, molding clay sculptures, and creating a mini version of themselves with mixed materials. Our little ones also enjoy music by singing, dancing, and participating in other musical activities. Besides playing outside on a daily basis, children participate in holiday celebrations, breakfast events with parents and grandparents, parades, pizza picnic and much more! Our preschoolers know how to have fun at FPDS!
