In the fall of 2021, my son was due to start preschool. He really needed a strong early childhood program. I'm so glad we chose TFS. Not only did he learn academics, he learned how to be part of a community, how to be a good friend, and there's a strong focus on social-emotional learning. We couldn't have been more happy to choose TFS for him. We loved it so much, that our 3-year-old daughter now attends TFS. The most heartwarming part is all my first son's teachers still to this day ask about him and how he's doing. At The Friendship School, you are not just part of the community but part of the family. Jessica Boggan
