FCP is located in Moorestown, NJ. Although we are not a religious program, our programming space is located at the St. Matthew Lutheran Church: 318 Chester Ave, Moorestown, NJ 08057.

Our programming space provides two large classrooms, a gymnasium, and a stage and dining area for in-house events.


Family Circle Playgroup (FCP) is a non-profit, cooperative organization that was started in the 1980’s by a group of moms who wanted to give their children a low-cost, preschool-like environment in which to grow socially and academically. We continue to strive for that goal and to provide the children with fun, safe, age appropriate activities that will foster their development.

Another goal is to have our members find friendship and camaraderie with each other. Family Circle Playgroup provides a unique opportunity to form life-long friendships for our members and their children. 

Statement of Purpose

The objective of FCP is to provide an atmosphere in which both caretakers and children can socialize and learn in a cooperative setting. 


Classes are available Monday through Friday, September through June. 

We offer classes for 12 month, 18 month, 2 year, 3 year and 4-5 year old children. Morning classes meet from approximately 9:15 am - 11:30 am, and afternoon classes meet from approximately 12:30pm - 2:45pm.

Classes are made up of no less than 4 enrolled children plus any tagalongs. Typically, classes consist of about 5-8 enrolled children plus tagalongs.

Classes are not predetermined. Rather, parents who fill out the registration form on the Enrollment Page indicate which days and times of the week that they are available for playgroup. FCP will collect registration forms and fees. Then, in August the Registrar will match up parents who have children of similar age AND the same availability. We will notify you of your class day and time once classes are formed.The parent stays on the premises at all times with their child. Tagalongs are welcome for an additional fee. Tagalongs are younger or older siblings to the enrolled child.

FCP is a non-sectarian organization and does not discriminate based on race, color, creed or physical limitation.

Preschool Supplement

There is an optional, at-home preschool supplement for children who will be 3 and 4 years old by October 1st of the program year. Once registration and tuition is complete, you can request the digital package at no extra charge by emailing Family Circle Playgroup

Children will strengthen gross motor skills at gym time and fine motor skills during craft time. Not to mention, they learn about a new topic or theme each week and socialize a bunch! This at-home preschool packet will complement your child’s playgroup. It covers letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and about 15 other important preschool goals! It can be completed one day a week, or broken up over multiple days.

Registering for playgroup twice a week is good for children of any age. But it is great for children who will be 4 years old by October 1st, if you would like your child to warm up to a kindergarten schedule.
