Meet The Head

Early Childhood at FA is a community, and children are our center. We are all charged with creating an environment that is designed to nurture each child’s social, emotional, academic, and physical development. Our faculty celebrates each child’s uniqueness and special contributions and cares deeply about each child. Our curriculum encourages teachers and children to become dreamers and risk-takers, and prepares all children to become independent and life-long learners.  - Patty Estes, Head of Lower School and Early Childhood
