Fairview Early Childhood Program


You cannot walk a stone’s throw into the Butler Tarkington or Meridian Kessler neighborhood without touching a family that has either attended or knows someone affiliated with Fairview's Early Childhood Program. How has this program withstood the test of time? Community, family, and service is the hallmark of the Fairview Early Childhood Program and what has kept it a part of Meridian Kessler for over 30 years. 


At Fairview Early Childhood Program our goal is to be a preschool program that purposefully supports young children as they take risks, engage with the world around them, and grow into a community of learners in which each child’s unique contribution is valued and incorporated. We look at the child as an individual with individual needs and levels of growth. We are teaching whole language and kindergarten readiness skills with a hands-on approach. When a class builds an igloo out of plastic milk jugs, they are learning a multitude of concepts: imagination, uses for the resources around them, social studies, and team work, all while developing friendships with those around them.


 “My son has attended the ECP since he was 13 months old and I owe all of the teachers and staff so much gratitude for the role they have played in his development. He has grown into such a happy, healthy little guy and I think he is fully prepared for his next big step in life. I truly accredit a big part of that to the wonderful teachers and staff that have worked with him, the thoughtful and well planned activities, and especially to the loving environment you provide.” – JM
