Friends Christian Preschool is designed to provide students with an opportunity for social, emotional and spiritual growth as well as a beginning adjustment to a more formal school experience. The preschool is committed to academic excellence, educating the whole child, and maximizing each students potential, encouraging critical thinking, problem solving, and effective communication within the context of a Biblical worldview.
“We are excited to partner with Garden Grove Friends Church in providing a Christ-Centered learning experience for the children in and around Garden Grove. Families should expect their child to feel loved and nurtured during their first school experience. We pray families will know we are in these early years together and we are honored to come alongside them and help their children grow and develop in all areas of their young lives,” shared Sandy Pierce – Regional Director of Preschools at Friends Christian School.
Families will experience a developmental program consistent with Friends’ long established and highly regarded schools, Friends Christian Preschool and Little Friends Preschool in Yorba Linda. The new Garden Grove campus will feature bright and engaging classrooms for preschoolers starting from 2 years old through Junior Kindergarten taught by fully licensed staff on the beautiful campus of Garden Grove Friends Church. Classes available will be M – F, M/W/F, and T/Th. Additionally, extended care opportunities will conveniently be available for families as well as a potty training class for the 2’s only, for an additional fee.
“We are excited about this opportunity to serve students and families in Garden Grove. Friends Christian School has established two of the top preschools in Yorba Linda and we have served generations of students in and around Yorba Linda and Placentia. The addition of Garden Grove will allow us to reach even more families and to provide an exemplary preschool program that will support a partner in our ministry,” shared Todd Perkins – Head of School at Friends Christian School.
The schools mission is to develop, equip and nurture students to positively impact their world for Jesus Christ. The knowledgeable staff at Friends Christian Preschool work together to ensure a safe, loving, and nurturing environment for all students.
