In our post-COVID world, tours will look different than in previous years. Guests will not be taken into the classrooms. You will be able to observe the classrooms from the window and safety precautions will be in place.

During the tour, you will learn about life at FCCC and visit each of our classrooms.  You will have the opportunity to see our classrooms in action, watching the children play and learn under the tutelage of our competent and caring staff.  You will be able to observe children engaging in fun and educational activities both indoor and outdoor in our large play yard and courtyard.  The ample outdoor space is used all year-round, weather permitting, and the children get plenty of fresh air and exercise.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions of staff and our one on one tours provide a great opportunity to focus on your individual needs and concerns.
