First Friends preschool is designed to meet the needs of three- and four-year-old children who are developing typically as well as for those children who have special needs.

First Friends Preschool is offered at Antrim Elementary School, Greenfield Elementary School, Hancock Elementary School, and Peterborough Elementary School. Our quality program is designed to provide enriching experiences for each child.

First Friends children learn through active exploration and interaction in an enriching environment so there are many opportunities provided for sociodramatic play, art, music, and movement. Each morning’s activities are designed to develop your child’s language/literacy, cognitive, social/emotional, fine and gross motor, self-care, and independence skills.

Children learn also from each other. Typically-developing children need to learn that we all have differences — for some, certain things are difficult to do while other things are done with ease. Children at First Friends will learn a great deal about patience and understanding. By learning these early in life, we believe they will grow up to be well-adjusted, more compassionate adults.
