New Garden Friends School Kindergarten Admissions Special Event

When students begin kindergarten they come with varying experiences. New Garden Friends School takes 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. Their full day program allows opportunities for students to go outside multiple times every day. Children are given the space to create, negotiate, pretend, immerse themselves in imaginative play, and engage with the natural world.
