Curriculum

FPC Weekday Preschool has long used the play-based program, WEE Learn, as a foundation for our curriculum. Within that framework, our experienced teachers tailor their units to meet the needs and interests of their children. Through learning centers, small and large group activities, and individual instruction, teachers present developmentally appropriate content.

In addition to WEE Learn, we offer Zoo-phonics beginning in our three-year-old classes to supplement letter identification and phonetic awareness in a fun, playful way. Zoo-phonics engages the children’s senses while teaching through physical games and activities.
