Welcome to the Early Schools!

Dear Friend,

CFS is grateful to be one of the

2016 Independent Weekly "Best of"

Early Childhood Learning Facilities.

We hope as you explore here you will discover more about our vibrant program for children ages 3-6.

At Carolina Friends Early Schools...

  • children learn through creating deep and lasting relationships with the world around them.
  • As they relate to one another, they develop essential social skills such as an understanding of inclusivity and conflict resolution.
  • The children's learning grows from their engagement with the rich and varied materials offered in their classrooms.
  • In the Early Schools, students, teachers, and families collaborate to set the stage for children to become seekers of knowledge all their lives.

Experience The Wonder of Learning
From January to May 2017, CFS helped host this international exhibit in Durham:

The Wonder of Learning is a democratic piazza calling international attention to the importance of education and schools as places for discussion and mutual exchange: a piazza for dialogue about our qualities and our limits, about what we are now and what we could become.

The exhibition speaks to all those involved in schooling - teachers, pedagogues, psychologists, families, children, etc. - and to all members of the general public who believe that safeguarding educational processes and their evolution is of fundamental importance for society.

Our co-hosts are the Lakewood Avenue Children's School, the Duke University Sanford School of Public Policy, and the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Education.
The exhibit and related events represent an unprecedented opportunity in the Triangle to nurture early education for all our children. Please learn more about The Wonder of Learning.
