Fun Factory Preschool: Ages 3-4
This popular program has classrooms at the Folsom Community Center and the Folsom Sports Complex. Children may enter the program at age three and continue the following year, or attend a single year. Classes for four-year-olds are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; and Tuesdays and Thursdays for three-year-olds. Fun Factory follows the FCUSD instructional calendar but doesn’t observe the staff development days, and introduces students to the basics, including colors, numbers, letters and handwriting. Activities are designed to help the children develop motor skills and learn appropriate behaviors. Typical daily activities include small-group stations, arts and crafts, carpet time for songs and stories, outdoor exercise and a snack break. Theme days, holiday celebrations and occasional off-site field trips are held throughout the year. Learn more and visit the classrooms from 4-6 p.m. during the Open House on February 18; registration for the 2015 school year takes place on February 25 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Folsom Sports Complex.
