From The Director

Welcome to Small Friends! I am thrilled to lead the only Early Education Center serving the vibrant and diverse Nantucket community. This year we are celebrating 27 years of providing care to our students. This is an exciting time for your family, especially for your growing little one. Schools can teach many things. Our loving and knowledgeable staff work to plan the day, month, and year in accordance with the needs of your young child. The experiences at Small Friends encourage children to interact with the world around them, express themselves creatively, gain foundational academic skills, and communicate with each other. Families are essential partners in this work, and we provide numerous opportunities for families to be actively involved in their children’s education. We encourage parents, grandparents, and friends to join in classroom and school wide events or volunteer during the day. Please take a look around our website. For even more information, plan to come in for a school tour. We'd be happy to show you around, and we'd love to welcome your family to Small Friends!
