The Friends Learning Center


The Friends Learning Center offers weekly kindergarten readiness classes for preschool children ages 4 and 5 years old.  Our classes are designed to foster readiness skills that will help prepare your child with a strong foundation to support their entry into kindergarten and subsequent primary school years. These classes are a great way to supplement your child’s current preschool or homeschooling program. Our classes are a great fit for students that could benefit from smaller individualized group instruction, need additional support to help solidify those kindergarten readiness skills, or are just looking to add more academics to their half-day preschool program. 

The Friends Learning Center’s classes are each one hour long, and have a limit of 5 students per class, allowing individualized attention for each student in the class. Our classes are all creative, instructional, interactive, and incorporate hands-on learning. But the best part about all our classes is that they are FUN! They follow a multi- learning approach incorporating visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles to meet the needs of all students. All our hands-on classes are a “learn by doing” environment, meaning your child will gain new skills by doing, and engaging with, the targeted subject. Studies have supported that hands-on learning provides many positive outcomes such as strong student engagement, increased content retention, and improved problem solving and critical thinking skills.
