The mission at Friendship is to provide the community with a high quality early childhood Christian program that promotes social, emotional, cognitive and physical development in young children. Friendship is a happy place that uses play as the primary means to develop skills and growth, while fostering discovery, friendships and enjoyment in the preschool experience. We welcome families of all faiths.
