First Friends Preschool

Phone number: 903.660.5025

First Friends Preschool exists to provide a loving environment within which children receive spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual development through play in a loving and enriching environment. Through continual prayer, teacher training and program evaluation, we strive to provide the most effective means of encouraging each child’s ongoing maturity. Our specific goals include: strengthening each child’s connection with God, self and others; and strengthening pre-academic, Kindergarten readiness skills.


We offer three age levels.  

Two year old class - Mother’s Day Out.  

Three year old class or those who turn three by Sept. 1.  

Four year old class for children who turn four by Sept. 1.

We follow the HISD calendar except we start the Monday before Labor Day and end our school year one week before HISD ends. 


First Friends offers Tuesday and Thursday for our Mother’s Day Out class. This class is limited to 8 children to 2 teachers. Three and four year old classes are offered on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Classes are limited to 8 children per class to one teacher. You may enroll all four days, three days, or two days. We also offer early drop-off and late pick-up for those who are interested. 


The curriculum of the preschool is designed to stimulate children spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally through learning centers and theme based activities and teachings. 


Enrichment opportunities include: Music, Spanish, Sign Language, Puppets, Developmental Fitness, and Special Story Time. Above all, an effort is made to establish in each child a sense of his or her self-worth as a child of God. 


You may register your child by contacting JUDY BAYNE and completing a registration form. Because of limited class size, enrollment is not official until your non-refundable registration fee is received.
