In only its fourth year of existence, Reading Friends has received the honor of being named “Best Private School” in Denton County by The News Connection, a local Denton County newspaper. The voting was conducted among readers of the News Connection.
Reading Friends is a private preschool offering an academically-based, systematic curriculum for children between the ages of two and six years. Reading Friends was founded over 27 years ago in Fort Worth. The Flower Mound/Lewisville Reading Friends location opened its doors in 2005 under the ownership of Marlo Senick and has received rave reviews from local parents.
“Reading Friends’ commitment to academic excellence in our children, even at an early age, has reaped rewards to which decades of children can attest. I am thrilled that this excellence has been recognized by the readers of The News Connection,” stated Marlo Senick.
The superior academic curriculum and top teacher staff provide students at Reading Friends Flower Mound/Lewisville with a strong foundation of education. With a focus on developing and nurturing each child both academically and socially, children of Reading Friends can expect to enter elementary school with a distinct advantage.
One parent of a Reading Friends Flower Mound/Lewisville student said, “Reading Friends encompasses everything we want as parents in a preschool; an innovative, creative program taught by experienced and degreed teachers. Although we originally enrolled at Reading Friends for these reasons, we continue to re-enroll each year because of the genuine care and love our son experiences every day at school and the positive attitude he has developed towards learning and his education.”
Founder Nancy Spencer opened Reading Friends in 1980 in the back of a children’s bookstore to create a love for reading and learning and to instill a confidence and sense of achievement that is so crucial at a young age. Over the years, the original curriculum expanded to include phonics-based Language, Math, Music and Singing, Creative Art, Gross Motor, Outdoor Play, and Discovery Sciences. In response to repeated inquiries to expand the program beyond the walls of the original location, Nancy Spencer agreed to make the curriculum, corresponding storybook characters and operating standards available to a limited number of qualified franchisees.
