​What Our Teachers Are Saying...

The Foundations Tradition

Foundations was founded in 1978 by a group of local teachers who needed care for their own children. It became clear that the local Englewood community was in need of quality child care and the ministry that is Foundations was born. The small co-op preschool grew to include care for toddlers in the early 80's. Another transformation came in the 90's with the addition of care for infants. With the creation of VPK in 2005, Foundations grew again. Our legacy for exceptional care and early education experiences begins with the dedicated individuals who have found a calling in Early Childhood Education.
