Welcome to Gwynedd Friends School
At Gwynedd Friends School, we watch lifelong friendships blossom as our students work hard at play. We weave the Quaker testimonies of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship into our curriculum, helping us to build a moral foundation for each of our little friends. 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. Our gym and yoga classes enrich our program, keeping the children moving during the week, which is especially nice during the colder months.
Our school's idyllic setting helps our young friends discover the natural world. Children learn all about the wonders of nature throughout their years with us and play outside rain or shine. We are proud of our outdoor areas, offering plenty of open space to run, climb on logs, crawl through the "big" tunnel, build with outdoor blocks, ride bikes, and experiment with water and mud. The School has two large natural playgrounds, a forest trail, and a big field for all to enjoy.
We hope you will come visit us here at Gwynedd Friends School. We have so much to share with new friends!
