Our school is guided by Quaker principals of non-violence, respect for the individual, and by the spirit of Quaker Meeting which allows what is best in each person to be affirmed and nurtured. Our program is designed to meet the needs of the children and to help them grow and develop at their own pace and in their own way. In an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance, we foster self-esteem and positive social relationships while providing an intellectually stimulating environment. Each child participates in activities that lead to the joy of observing, exploring, experimenting, discovering and creating.


Scarsdale Friends Nursery School opened in 1954 under the care of Scarsdale Friends Meeting to provide a preschool experience for children of Meeting members and the community. The nursery school is a non-profit organization committed to a culturally diverse education. We strive to create a program that reflects the lives of our children, families, staff, and community and to provide a welcoming and engaging environment.
