Quality preschool and toddler education is a vital component of a healthy community. Parents who have quality care stay in the workforce and participate in the economy, and elementary-ready children realize the most return for tax-funded education. Established in 1965, FMS is a non-profit organization that serves approximately 100 children, ages 19 months-6 years. FMS relies on fundraising to enrich our curriculum with components like high quality music education, an array of interactive Montessori materials, and a child-accessible facility. Our school has a rich history because of the many Fairbanks community members like you who have invested in early childhood education.
