Making a brigther future, one child at a time!
Francis Education Center offers 4 different programs. As you will see more in detail below, there are 4 different classes for 3 different age groups. We want to make sure that your child is provided with the proper setting and education that is suited for your child's age. Having 4 classes, one for each age group, allows your child to learn among other students who are the same age as well as allow the teacher to make lesson plans more specific and geared toward your child's age.
