Gwynedd Friends Preschool & Kindergarten

At Gwynedd Friends School, we watch lifelong friendships blossom as our students work hard at play.
Guided by the testimonies and values of Quakerism, our nature-based, learning-through-play curriculum has been carefully designed to meet each child where they are.
As teachers seek to nurture the Light in each child, they carefully observe their students` interests, helping to guide and facilitate learning.
Offering a wide range of interactive experiences allow young learners to discover the world with all of their senses whether they are reading, singing, crafting, building, baking, or just taking a nature walk.
