Preschool Program

Come Grow With Us

We know preschoolers.

Since 1971 New Garden Friends School has provided a nurturing, engaging, and pre-kindergarten program for students beginning at age 3. Today, "A Child's Garden" offers Preschool, PreK, and Transitional Kindergarten classes. Enrollment options include half and full day, part-time and full-time, and school year or year-round attendance. 

How many students in a class?

We believe in the importance of one-on-one attention and having teachers who truly know your child. Our ratio is 8:1. Multiple classrooms allow for large group activities as well as the option to split into smaller groups for academic instruction.

How do we enroll?

What is your curriculum?

We believe students thrive with a balance of academics and play. As a Quaker school, the practice of peaceful resolution of conflict, service toward others, and respect and inclusion are woven throughout all levels. Learn more.
