WELCOME TO FRIENDS!
Friends Nursery School is a play-based preschool in Palo Alto committed to nurturing the development of every child that walks through our doors while cultivating a lifelong love and passion for learning. Our fully-qualified teachers plan a well-rounded, creative program enabling children to explore their world through their senses, stimulating their creativity and leading them to become confident and resilient individuals. Our teacher/student ratio of 4:1 in our morning 3’s programs, and 5:1 in all other programs allows your child an incredible amount of support as they learn social skills with their peers. And our private and expansive outdoor play-area truly makes us unique.
COVID-19 UPDATE: School is currently closed, in alignment with guidance from Santa Clara County Public Health.
