From The Director

Thank you for visiting the Small Friends web site, whether you are a parent or a prospective family, we hope you will find everything you are looking for here. Small Friends has an important role in the community, it allows working families to leave their children in a warm, loving, environment, and feel confident that he/she is learning such skills as language arts, science, math, social studies, and most importantly how to be socially and emotionally healthy. This year we adopted a new social and emotional curriculum called Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS). This program was brought to us by a generous grant from the Tower Foundation, it gives students strategies on how to best handle conflict. This will empower them as they become older students and adults to problem solve on their own rather than relying on that of their parents or peers. It also teaches them how to solve a conflict in a healthy manner or how to handle situations in which their emotions become too high. This fun interactive program is a true asset to our school. I am very proud of our school and the quality care we provide, I hope you will visit this site to learn more. After you have familiarized yourself with our school please contact me to set up a tour and see us in action.
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
Best Regards, Allison Johnson
