Chico's FAS Early Education Center

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome! Our mission is to provide your child with all the tools needed to grow, learn, and thrive. The science station provides a space to experiment and observe, and the Growing Readers nook nurtures a love literacy. Our music exploration room and dramatic play areas foster your child’s creative side, and the age-specific outdoor classrooms and gardening boxes offer the chance to get outside to explore nature. Plus, the dedicated Movement Matters Zones and our expansive playgrounds encourage physical activity, socialization, and unstructured playtime. Check out our staff bios to learn more about our amazing team.
