Pre-K at Newtown Friends School

Launch a Love for Learning

Your child’s first steps at school are so crucial. Their early experiences in the classroom can set the stage for all the positive outcomes you hope for as they grow and mature. You want them to forge a path to confident learning in a calm, affirming setting that supports the values you embrace. Most of all, you want them to look forward to school starting with Pre-K and continuing in the years ahead. That enthusiasm for learning starts when a child feels known, loved, and celebrated.

  • Where To Begin

    If your four-year-old child is asking lots of questions, exploring their world, showing interest in new concepts, and appears ready for full-day activity, Pre-K at Newtown Friends School could be the perfect next step. What’s more, it offers early learners so many of the rich advantages of the broader Newtown Friends experience. 
  • Respect for Your Child’s Development

    We meet children where they are, helping them to learn and challenge themselves in ways appropriate to their personal developmental path. Teachers focus on social and emotional readiness as key components of our program, preparing your child for a smooth transition to Kindergarten. Parents appreciate the NFS emphasis on helping children feel confident.
  • The Right Blend of Academics and Play

    The Pre-K academic program draws from our overall curriculum, incorporating early reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. But we also ensure that our four and five-year-olds have healthy time each day for play, rest, socialization, and wholesome snacks. In addition to structured classroom time, Pre-K students benefit from free choice activities and several daily visits to the Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom. Special classes in music, immersive Spanish, library and physical education ensure that a Pre-K student’s week is well-balanced and thoroughly enjoyable.
  • Nurturing, Highly-Qualified Teachers

    Your child will have two full-time teachers and a comfortable class size that will not exceed 18 students. Caring NFS Pre-K faculty understand the unique needs of early learners and tailor their teaching methods accordingly. Part of our Pre-K admissions process includes a screening evaluation to make sure your child is ready for a happy, healthy Pre-K experience. Your child’s emotional health and physical safety are always our top priority.
  • A Kind and Gentle Culture

    The Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship are intentionally woven into our program, even for the youngest of learners. Our Pre-K students are valued participants in some of our most treasured community service activities, including the Intergenerational Program at neighboring Pennswood Village.
  • Convenient for Parents

    Pre-K at Newtown Friends School is a full-time, five day per week program, with the same hours as our K-8 classes, 8:20 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Before and after-school care is available.
