SERVICES: At Chappaqua Friends Nursery School for 2 – 5 year olds, each child’s growth–social, emotional, physical, and intellectual–is recognized as unique. In its developmental, child-centered program, children discover the joy of learning and the intersecting worlds of friendship, nature, self-expression and listening.
GREATEST STRENGTHS: Daily routines of indoor and outdoor free-play, art, and group times for stories, conversations,and music provide a framework within which children can feel safe and secure as they explore new relationships, new materials, new feelings, and new ideas. “Quaker values of friendship, simplicity, peaceful resolution of conflict, and community infuse our program for children and families.”
