"...I will never forget the first time I came to First Friends. The quality of care, the extraordinary attention to the environment and the clairity of the program rang out like a full-piece orchestra. It has been a dream come true for us to have a high-quality childcare...There are no preschools in Fairfax or San Anselmo that come even close to matching First Friends' quality."

-- Elizabeth Share and Paul McLauglin

"...we felt like we had stumbled into Ross Valley’s best kept secret. It’s nothing like anything else we found. My son is developing in leaps and bounds. We’re very happy that we choose First Friends and we would highly recommend it to others!"

-- G. and S. Thomas, Fairfax
