Foundations Prep School is a state licensed day care that exists to provide a safe, loving and positive environment for children of working parents in our community.


Our History

Foundations Prep School opened its doors with 16 students on September 12, 2005, originally as a church-sponsored daycare.

Cassie Saquing (part of the FPS start-up team) and Lauren Torres (a former FPS Teacher and FPS Assistant Director) purchased FPS from the church and remain committed to the founding principles of FPS, which include providing high-quality and personalized care for children in this community.

FPS offers care and learning in eight classrooms for children, ages six weeks to six years. (Summer camp available to FPS Alumni through age 7 years.)

Foundations Prep School is not a corporate daycare and purposefully remains independent to have the freedom to make changes as needs arise.

FPS is not a religion based daycare center or educational institution and is a private facility. The children may be exposed to various religious themes during holiday seasons through songs, books, stories and projects; however, FPS never instructs the children as to any religious practice or asks them to believe in any specific way. FPS instructors often decorate their classrooms with seasonal themes but do not use purely religious symbols. While FPS regularly uses the church sanctuary for its Winter Show and Graduation Ceremony, and while the sanctuary may have religious decorations on the stage, these decorations are not those of FPS. The sanctuary is a mixed use space and FPS is fortunate to be able to use such great space for FPS purposes but such use is not to be construed as the imposition of any religion on the children. If any parent has any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please stop by the office.

“Both our daughters went to Foundations. Our daughters are now 15 and 13, but we are still friends with many of the parents/staff from back then. It was a wonderful place for our kids to go and learn and grow. I miss those days of how little they were and feel like it was just yesterday we met Cassie and everyone at Foundations. This isn’t just a place where you drop your kids off and pick them up; it’s a true community within a community and I’d recommend FPS 100 out of 100 times to parents who are looking for a great place to help in raising, protecting and caring for their kids.”
