Our History

 

Friends Preschool and Kindergarten opened in 1997 with just 8 families, today we host over 70 families.  The program was developed by Barb Harris, Robin Fletcher and Barb Woolworth as a ministry of the Milford United Methodist Church. 

 

We began with a passion for children and an interest in passing on our faith.  Today, we are still passionate about our dream; giving children the opportunity to experience God’s love, as they play, learn and grow.

 

This ministry has been a true blessing to our founders, our staff and especially the children we are able to prepare for success in their educational and spiritual life.
