Our preschool is an integral part of United Friends School and is guided by the same Quaker testimonies that guide the elementary school and middle school. This United Friends School preschool program provides a nurturing environment that encourages children to view themselves as competent, independent learners. We offer a developmentally appropriate program focusing on the growth of the whole child: physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually. We understand each child is a unique person with an individual pattern of growth and development, as well as individual personality, learning style and family background. In both preschool programs, the arts are integrated throughout the children’s daily activities. Spanish, music, and library instruction are offered by specialists.  All preschool programs participate in various school activities with the K-8 classes and interact with many of the students at recess.

3 and 4 Year-Old Program

This program is for children who have turned 3 by September 1st and are potty-trained. Children stay for lunch (brought from home).  After School Care is available to students enrolled in Full-Day program.
