    • My son loves PFS school. He’s always singing songs they learned and when he says or does something new, I’ll say, “Where’d you learn that?” and he’ll say, “At school”. PFS is a fun place for your child to begin their learning experience.

    • I have three children that I have happily sent to PFS during their pre-school years. There are so many wonderful things about the school: the loving teachers, the huge playground, the beautiful landscaping and trees, and the hand-on learning. Most importantly, my children were always happy and healthy.
