Toddlers and Friends

Toddler & Friends



Our process-based art program, taught by our experienced art teachers Amy Kiely and Courtney O'Malley, is designed to give the youngest learners the opportunity to socialize, explore materials, and play in a carefully designed toddler classroom. Children increase their art literacy, develop problem-solving skills, and build confidence as they engage creatively with peers, parents, and caregivers. The Toddlers and Friends program is a wonderful and gentle introduction to the Friends School Haverford learning community. Toddlers and Friends is designed for young children ages 20 months to three years of age and their caregivers. Please bring a snack to enjoy.


Space is limited to 10 students per class. Sign up for an entire fall, winter, or spring semester of Tuesday and/or Wednesday classes. Our Tuesday class is 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m., and our Wednesday class is 9:30 - 10:30. To guarantee a space for your child, please complete the registration below and pay the class fee in full via our online registration form. All fees must be paid before your child is admitted to the program. No refunds will be made for non–attendance. Registration will close automatically when a class fills up. You may contact Sarai Nieves, Director of Enrollment Management at [email protected] or call 610-642-2334  for more information.
