Friends Child Care Center
FCCC provides a stimulating learning environment for young children that encourages them to be caring, curious, responsible human beings.
Friends Child Care Center was founded in 1978 by a number of employees of AFSC and several Quaker organizations within Friends Center. We are guided by the Quaker belief that there is that of God in every person, which inspires and informs everyday life at the center, while affirming the individual value of each child, teacher and parent.
FCCC accepts children from about three months to pre-kindergarten, with priority given to families employed by sponsoring organizations in Friends Center, siblings of currently enrolled children, and children of AFSC employees. We strive to reflect the ethnic and cultural diversity of our urban community. FCCC does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation or national origin.
Parents are encouraged to participate through serving on committees, engaging in fundraising, covering classrooms at naptime for workshops and staff meetings, and building and repairing classroom equipment. FCCC’s Board of Directors
consists primarily of parents, past and present, whose cooperation comes into play at the Board level, where decisions are made by consensus.
