Classes

Each class at FHP is designed to provide plenty of indoor and outdoor "free play," as well as time for more group-centered activities, such as story, art, and snack. We strive to provide a balance between active and quiet time, and to give each child as much individual attention as possible.

Twos

The Twos classes progress at a gradual and relaxed pace to encourage confidence and success. Children will be introduced to experiences that build on their emerging awareness of the world around them as the teachers support and encourage peer interaction and group play.

Threes

classes

Threes and fours

class

This year (2022-2023), our 3s and 4s are meeting together on the 3s days. So every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, they get the benefit of a larger group.

This combination of classes is one way we are responding to the current needs and abilities of our community. We reevaluate what is needed and what we are able to provide. With input from our staff and families, our Board of Directors adjusts our offerings.

  • Our experienced teachers adjust activities to meet the needs of both age groups. The 3s have the benefit of seeing their older peers. The 4s get to be leaders while still having some focused time on Tuesday and Thursday.

  • Our 3s attend Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

  • Our 4s attend 5 day a per week.

  • We maintain a small adult to child ratio (4-6:1).

  • Tuition is $385 per month for 3s and $565 per month for 4s (2022-2023).
