Lower School Open Houses at New Garden Friends School

NGFS believes children deserve to spend their days in a learning community that knows and respects them, not for whom they may become, but for the people they are today. Their design of curriculum, activities, and expectations honor the developing minds, bodies, and hearts of their students. Taking children’s ideas and questions seriously, makes their intellectual inquiry boundless. Learn more about NGFS Kindergarten and Lower School programs at their “Explore. Discover. Grow” admissions events on the Lower School campus at 1128 New Garden Road.
