Fairville Friends School nurtures and creatively educates young children in the Friends tradition. We embrace a play-based approach to learning and spend much of every day outside enjoying our beautiful rural campus. We are committed to being a peaceful community of learners who seek spiritual and intellectual growth by fostering an appreciation of nature, celebrating diversity, and encouraging self-expression through the arts. The school embraces the Quaker vision of education through simplicity, kindness, respect for all living things, and a deep concern for the whole child. By allowing each child's Inner Light to shine, the school reflects the core belief of the Religious Society of Friends: that there is that of God in everyone.
