Do you know a child who will be five on or before September 1st? Abington Friends School invites families to attend a Kindergarten Playdate! By attending this playdate, the student visit and Kindergarten readiness assessment for both reading and quantitative skill building admission requirements will be fulfilled! This one hour visit will include use of classroom learning centers, arts and craft activities and group book readings.
AFS offers full-day Kindergarten, with extended day and early-care options. Deep rooted Quaker values are a distinctive piece of an academic program that incorporates learning through experience and play unlike any other school. Each classroom has its own door to the beautiful outdoor classrooms and play spaces so that the learning is not limited by walls and desks. In fact, AFS is home to the first Pennsylvania certified nature explore classroom, and the Headwaters Discovery Playground was recently named one of the top five outdoor learning sites in the world!
At AFS, teachers truly know each student and are able to personalize their approach to each learner to bring out the best in each child. Kindergarten teachers at AFS have more than 40 years of combined experience with this age group and prepare their students with strong math, writing, reading, communication and social skills. Students are learning traditional academics through non-traditional pedagogy. They are excited about learning, because they are leading the discussions and encouraged to ask big questions.
A child’s individuality is valued here, as much as their intellect. The work being done in our Kindergarten classrooms is sacred. AFS is providing students the tools and skills to think creatively, be strong, use resilience and problem solve with their mind and heart.
