Toute Petite Section (Preschool for 2 ½ year olds)
Posted 06/01/2018 12:00AM

Although FAIS has always welcomed 2½ year olds in preschool, we've long believed our youngest students would best flourish in an environment that meets their unique needs. We're excited to announce the opening of our first class specifically for 2½ year olds this fall!

Toute Petite Section (TPS) will use a child-driven and play-based education to introduce the concept of guided inquiry, prepare these little learners for the structure of preschool (ages 3-4), and teach the capability of working and playing in a group.

Space is limited — contact the Office of Admissions today at or call extension 310.


Stop by 4th grade classroom 2-A on Tuesday, June 19 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. for an exhibition featuring many of the projects worked on throughout the year.

It's not too late to make your summer plans--register now for Summer Camp and Summerfest!

Mark your calendars--on June 24 FAIS' T-ball team, the Tigers, will celebrate their end of season at a Hillsboro Hops game at 4 p.m. If you are interested in joining the team and their families, please contact Ryan.
