First Friends Early Learning


Event Calendar Parent Handbook

Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 9:15a–2:15p

First Friends Early Learning is a year-round Mother’s Day Out style program for children 6 weeks old through 5 years old. We offer play-based and Biblically-focused activities with age-appropriate academic enrichment.

The two-fold purpose of First Friends Early Learning is:

  1. To provide a program for children to attend while parents are involved in an Houston's First Bible study, or volunteer at the Faith Center.
  2. To provide a program where students can develop spiritually, cognitively and socially in a safe and loving environment.
