All classes at FPP are taught by experienced and dedicated teachers. They are the heart of the Preschool and create the warm and nurturing environment that allows our children to thrive and grow. Each class has a lead teacher as well as a teacher’s aide. Parents or other caregivers also assist in the classroom once or twice a week throughout the school year. To further their professional development, our teachers attend monthly staff meetings and participate in training programs throughout the year focused on early childhood education and development.
