Circle of Friends Preschool and Enrichment Programs at The Anchor Church provides an innovative curriculum in a traditional, warm, small-school setting.
CoF focuses on developing the whole child: socially, emotionally, and cognitively.
Class sizes are small, allowing highly qualified teachers to meet each child where he or she is developmentally and to offer appropriate STEAM – centered challenges to promote growth.
“It is our role as educators to foster the love of learning in little students!” says Educational Director, Deb Secchia, “By inspiring curiosity, promoting problem solving techniques, encouraging risk taking, and instilling confidence, we are shaping leaders of the future! We provide an environment where children feel safe to take risks, practice trial and error, and gain confidence”.
The program for the youngest population, Team Toddler, meets once a week for toddlers (with a grown-up teammate) to have fun and socialize. Children delight in learning through play, with exciting themes and activities involving music, art, science, and literature.
In September 2020 Circle of Friends will be adding a new class to its special and unique programming, a “drop off” class for two-year-olds. This program will offer two two-hour sessions during the week for little ones to socialize with others and gain confidence and independence.
In addition to preschool programs for three- and four-year-olds, Circle of Friends also offers a Transitional Kindergarten program designed for children who narrowly miss the kindergarten cut off or for five-year-olds who need an extra growth year.
For its oldest population, Circle of Friends offers an amazing Kindergarten Enrichment Program.
Geared toward supplementing morning or afternoon half-day kindergarten programs, the KE Program allows children to work together to design, engineer, and create wonderful class projects. Council Rock Transportation now offers busing between Circle of Friends and six elementary schools: Wrightstown, Newtown, Sol Feinstone, Richboro, Churchville, and MM Welch.
Circle of Friends also offers flexible scheduling and several extended day options.
Limited openings are available for the 2020-21 school year.
