“FCCNS is an amazing environment for our daughters!  The focus is on play and social learning, which research has shown to be incredibly important for development in Pre-K ages.  There is an incredible array of activities that kids engage in daily - coloring/painting, construction toys, dress-up, story time, dance, interaction with numbers/letters, and a lot of outdoor playground time.  Our oldest (Pre-K) is totally ready for kindergarten because of the co-op - she knows all her letters and numbers from class, etc, and it isn't even halfway through the year.  It is affordable, the teachers are incredible, the parents are super nice, it is a great organization.”
