Our Philosophy

Our Little Friends philosophy is to promote each child's cognitive, social, emotional and physical development through age-appropriate learning experiences.

Little Friends School believes that the child is the focal point of all activity within the school. Each child is taught on an individual basis with the overall goal to instill a love of learning and a strong foundation that will lead to future school success. Little Friends is dedicated to the education of all children without regard to race, color, creed or national origin.
