The Friendship Academy is an amazing program where all children play to learn. This unique program provides an excellent early childhood education program with a research-driven and enriched curriculum in a child-friendly and safety-oriented setting.
The Friendship Academy is an inclusive program, which means that children with disabilities learn side-by-side with their typically developing peers. The benefit to the children with disabilities is the opportunity to model their peers. The benefits to the typically developing children are many.
