Our Programs & Curriculum

Friday's Child offers 4 distinct programs with customized curriculum based on your child's age and development.

Infants

Rain Drops Room - We know how important it is to nurture and educate infants from birth, and infant care is in high demand! We have two infant rooms, and each can have 6 babies from 6 weeks old up to 18 months of age. These babies begin to recognize colors and say their first words!

Toddlers

Rainbow Room - Things get a little more structured in the toddler room as we teach our children to recognize colors, numbers, shapes, and songs. This room follows the same schedule, including naps, lunch, and snacks. Children are in this room between 1 and 2 years of age.

Two Year Olds

Rain Drop Room - Our two year olds learn discipline, sharing, potty training, number recognition, and their ABCs in the Raincloud room! They also learn a little bit more responsibility and independence. They leave with the fundamentals of academic learning.

Preschoolers

Rainforest Room - Our preschool room is treated like a mini kindergarten class, and the students learn a great deal of independence and classroom behavior. We focus on the educational details of each theme and build on our academic foundation built in the two-year-old room.
