Friends of the Family Enrichment Center
The Friends of the FEC is a group of individuals and companies dedicated to early childhood education.

Webb Family Enrichment Center, their parents and the Yavapai College students who are pursuing a degree and career in early childhood education.

The FEC receives funding for shade structure
The Friends of the Family Enrichment Center would like to thank the Kiwanis Club of Prescott and the Margaret T. Morris Foundation who together have provided funds to purchase and install a new shade structure over the climbing structure in the Preschool play yard.
Outdoor activities, which allow active children space to move while developing motor skills, are an important part of the daily routine at the FEC. The educationally-oriented outside play area at the FEC includes a variety of materials that are rotated on a daily or weekly basis. These include an obstacle course that promotes balance, concept development and motor skills; large-scale puzzles that promote problem solving and math skills; and sensory and science tables with birdseed, water, funnels, cups, shells, bugs and magnifying glasses. There is also a sand box, bicycle track, and climbing structures.
Children and teachers use the outdoor play areas up to 4 hours a day. Thank you Kiwanis Club of Prescott and Margaret T. Morris Foundation for making the play area useable throughout the day.
