Foundations partners with parents to help them prepare their children for success in school by helping them lay both educational and spiritual foundations in their child’s life. We offer first class 4K, and high-quality 3K and 3T classes as well as many opportunities for families to learn from one another and from experts. Our mission is to help families grow in ways to nurture and shepherd their children through the most important developmental phase of their child’s life, birth to five.
Foundations receives support from various individuals, organizations, and grants to help us keep the cost for families to attend Foundations at a very reduced rate. They want to support the investment that Foundations families are making in their families by attending Foundations. 100% of our families benefit from this reduced tuition. Additional scholarships and vouchers may be available as needed. No one is turned away from Foundations based on financial need.
We are excited to walk through the possibility of your child joining one of our classes. By applying to Foundations, you are not only committing your child but your family to learning and growing in a Christian environment dedicated to seeing families thrive academically, physically, socially, and spiritually.
