Preschool

FRCS provides an environment in which preschool students can develop spiritually, emotionally, physically, mentally, and socially through age-appropriate activities.

Positive and supportive relationships are crucial during the earliest years for healthy emotional development, cognitive development, and social attachment. FRCS believes that play is a key vehicle for discovery and growth. The preschool program emphasizes developing healthy relationships and consideration and respect for others.

The curriculum for FRCS Preschool focuses on gross motor skills, fine motor skills, attention span development, self-reliance and confidence, social abilities, self and environmental awareness, ability to follow instructions, work independently, and academic skills that prepare the student for the classically-based academics of kindergarten and a lifelong love for learning.
