Gwynedd Friends School Happenings
Our first week back
Yearly Lunch Bunch Sign-up
It's not too late! If you would like to enroll your child in our yearly lunch bunch program, the discounted rate will be offered until Monday, September 19th.
During our afternoon programs this year, children will be divided into two groups, the "Littles" (Play Group/Threes) and the "Bigs" (Pre-K/K). We believe that this will enhance our Lunch Bunch experience for all of our students and the enrichment activities we can provide. Afternoon Programming begins on September 19th.
Discounted pricing (up to 10% off drop-in rates) available if you select 1-5 afternoons for the entire year. When you select Yearly Friends, your child's space is guaranteed for the year even when the daily drop-in is not available.
Daily Drop-in Friends*
Drop in pricing: 12 to 1pm $9.50; 12 to 2:30pm $19.50; 1 to 2:30pm $13.50
*Space is very limited for daily drop-ins and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so please be sure to sign up early. We are sorry but we are not able to guarantee available spots for Daily Drop-in Friends.
*All monthly charges for Daily Drop-in Friends are added to your child's FACTS account.
*Daily drop-in Friends is NOT available on the first Wednesday of each month.
"Lunch Bunch": 12 to 1pm
Lunch (nut/peanut-free sent in from home) will be enjoyed with friends. Children will then have the chance for self-guided play.
Enrichment "Clubs": 1pm to 2:30pm
Our afternoon friends will gather together for outdoor play from 1 to 1:30pm. At 1:30, the two groups will take part in their Enrichment activities, which are appropriately planned for each age group. A light snack will be served prior to pick up.
