We missed you! Schedule a visit today.


Wednesday, Feb. 9 | 12:15 p.m. | Preschool, Pre-K, TK

We believe that school should be a place where children feel safe and nurtured and are able to learn at their own pace. In our Preschool program, our days are designed to encourage children to explore their surroundings both inside and outside the classroom. Our Pre-K curriculum provides play-based instruction that engages young children and provides consistent opportunities for meaningful learning. Serving as a bridge to Kindergarten, the Transitional Kindergarten program provides the “gift of time” for younger students to engage in a rich, early educational experience.

Wednesday, Feb. 16 | 12:15 p.m. | TK, Kindergarten

When students begin kindergarten they come with varying experiences. We take into consideration each child's social readiness, gross and fine motor skills' development, and language, math, and reading abilities. Learning matters and so does fresh air and time to play. Our full day program allows opportunities for students to go outside multiple times every day. Children are given the space to create, negotiate, pretend, engage with the natural world, and immerse themselves in imaginative play.

Wednesday, Feb. 23 | 12:15 p.m. | Lower School (grades 1-6)

We believe children deserve to spend their days in a learning community where they are known and respected, not for who they may become, but for the people they are today. Our curriculum, activities, and expectations are specifically designed to honor the developing minds, bodies, and hearts of our students. When children's ideas and questions are taken seriously, their intellectual inquiry is boundless. 

Thursday, Feb. 24 | 9-10 a.m. | Lower School (grades 1-6) Customized Open House Visits

Join us for a tour of the Lower School Campus. See learning in action in the classrooms and fun and discovery in our outdoor play and adventure spaces. Can't make this date? Schedule a tour for another day.

Saturday, Mar. 26 | 9:30-10:30 a.m. | TK & K Playground Open House

Join us on the Lower School playground for TK & Kindergarten Open House. Meet the teachers. See the classroom. Ask questions. Students will have fun playing on the "big playground". Older and younger siblings are welcome to attend!

Thursday, March 31 | 12:15-1 p.m. |  Upper School Virtual Lunch & Learn

Appreciating and answering the needs of today's students demands that we let go of assumptions about the future and focus on providing students with what they will need to become engaged, compassionate citizens. This begins with serious scholarship and a commitment to building the competencies students need to listen deeply, communicate clearly, collaborate effectively, and think critically, considering multiple perspectives. Join Head of School Kim Freedman, Head of Upper School Tanisha Jones, and College Counselor Jennifer Lancaster as they share what makes an NGFS Upper School education unique.
