A Big Place for Little Friends

Like the big kids, Little Friends children benefit from dedicated class time with Friends teachers, using learning spaces that include the Friends School Gymnasium, Lower School Library and turf field.

A collaborative environment

Structured cross-divisional collaboration is an essential part of the Little Friends experience, as our children learn from and with students from the different academic divisions.

The Garden at little friends

Created by one of our teachers, the garden is a wonderful teaching space for our students and provides an opportunity for our children to learn and work together. All Little Friends children spend time outside each day, exploring the main campus and the School’s native-plant teaching gardens.  
“My favorite things to do with my teacher is go outside and play, get dressed for water play and go home when mommy and daddy come!”

–Burk Principe, age 3

Swing by for a Visit!

We invite you to come take a look and see one of the most special places on the Friends campus. Little Friends has its own separate entrance from the main school that caters to parents and their young children.
