Something for everyone in Friends Academy's Community Program...

May 10, 2018

Babies and Birch Trees! Toddlers and Tadpoles! Parents, Kids and American Toads! The Encompass Community program treated families to a hike last night and continued the fun this morning in Family Nature class. They searched for polliwogs, slugs and scat, created a human see-saw and had a lot of laughs out by the vernal pool.

Nature programming for 6-14 year olds is offered every Monday and Wednesday from 9:15-12:30, Drop-in rate and sibling discount available.

Playgroup and Family Nature classes for 3-6 year olds run on Thursday mornings from 9-11, younger siblings always welcome


Art and Science classes for 6-14 year olds run on Wednesday afternoons, 3:30-5:30pm, $10 per class. Free events for whole families are announced every month!


The Encompass Community is a grant-funded initiative of the Center for Education Innovation and a partnership with Friends Academy. We are located on 65 acres of wilderness in Dartmouth, Ma.
