Born out of our commitment to the local community, we are proud to house the All Are Friends Montessori Preschool. The preschool was established by the church in 1997 and now is independently owned and operated by All Are Friend, LLC. The preschool currently enrolls approximately 50 students and is accepting new students.
The Montessori program is founded on the love of children and their individual personalities and needs. The philosophy encourages the development of values such as independence, self-discipline, respect, maintaining order and peace in social situations. This philosophy further extrapolates into the creation of adults contributing to a better society similar to the Christian philosophy.
All Are Friends has Plexiglas screens between facing desks. All desks are spaced in strict accordance with San Mateo County protocols. Extra washstands have been installed, facilitating washing hands after playing with any object. Handwashing continues after using bathrooms and eating food. In addition, the facility is cleaned every weekday.
