About Faithful Friends Preschool
Our Child Care Program
This is a very exciting and important stage of development for your child and we consider it a privilege to be a part of it. Our program is based on the belief children learn by doing. Fostering positive self-esteem and socialization are at the heart of our program of fun with a purpose.
Our Infant/Toddler Program offers day to day care in Reno NV for our youngest enrollees as we provide for their developmental needs. Our two year olds are in our transition program–still toddlers as they enter the preschool setting
Our Preschool Program encompasses ages two to five. The curriculum is play-based and our classroom offers learning centers, hands-on experiences, and age-appropriate activities. A kindergarten readiness focus is added for our pre-k enrollees.
The curriculum at Faithful Friends Preschool is not theology or religous based. Multicultural activities are included, and acknowledging faith in general terms in the preschool setting promotes discussions and acceptance of differences, respecting the religion of the home as parents reinforce and clarify values within their own belief structure.
While our tuition includes breakfast and morning and afternoon snacks, please be sure to pack a lunch for your child. We don’t have cold storage in our classrooms so please be sure that a cold pack is included in the lunch box. We do have microwaves and we are able to heat already prepared lunch items for your child.
Our Child Care Staff
Owner/Director Ginny Blank has been in the Early Childhood Education industry for over thirty years, coming to Reno in 1987 and joining the staff as Director at The Child Garden Children’s Center at Reactor Way and purchased the business in 2003. Our expansion on 7th Street in 2008 is an exciting venture in promoting play with a purpose. (Our Reactor Way site closed in 2014.)
As our enrollment numbers have grown over the past few years, we have added kind, loving and well-trained staff members who join us in continuing to provide the excellent quality of care and education you’ve come to expect from Miss Ginny and her staff.
