Hours Of Operation

School Hours

Feet painting, scavenger hunts, dramatic plays, investigative activities, science experiments…one lesson that all children experience at the FCC Preschool is that learning is fun!  After all, children do the most amazing things when they are given the best opportunity to explore.

The FCC Preschool is a 40-week program that runs from September through June.  The hours of operation are Monday through Thursday 8:00-4:00 and Friday 8:00-12:30.  Parents may choose to schedule their child 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days as long as there are open placements available.  In order to meet the needs of enrolled families and prospective clients, we do require a consistent schedule.  Once your time is reserved, any changes need prior approval.

Early Bird Program

Our goal at the FCC Preschool is not just to provide great learning experiences for children but also to help ease every family’s transition into preschool. The Early Bird Program compliments our morning and extended day programs by supporting families needing additional hours for their children. Drop off begins at 8:00 AM each day.

Extended Day Enrichment Program

In addition to the stimulating experience your child receives in the morning programs, in the afternoon enrichment program s/he will meet new friends and explore in classroom centers as well as participate in hands-on activities specifically designed to entice young minds to create, experiment, express, and have great fun!  As a parent, you know how important it is for your child to have fun learning at his/her own pace, which will make an easy transition into future school years.

Our Extended Day Enrichment Program hours are Monday through Thursday 12:30-3:30 and Late Day Pickup is until 4:00.  Parents may choose to schedule their child 1, 2, 3, or 4 days as long as there are open placements available. 

Additional Hours

At the FCC Preschool, fun time is always in high gear. Whether your child is having a blast exploring what will happen while squirting paint on a canvas from a bottle or creating a wooden block spectacular roadway coaster for toy cars and trucks—in our fun-filled classrooms, we make sure learning is exciting! Besides giving your child imaginative opportunities, we also give them more time with friends they love.

Throughout the school year, parents may add hours to their child’s schedule should placement become available due to a child’s absence from preschool or an unfilled enrollment space. In such circumstances, parents may request to add their child on a day in which s/he is not normally scheduled. Whenever possible, accommodations will be made.
