Bryn Mawr Thorne Kindergarten at Haverford

The Bryn Mawr Thorne Kindergarten at Haverford, which is based in a restored historic building on the Haverford College campus, was founded in 2004. The traditional program is small - enrolling no more than 14 children - and staffed by a teacher, an assistant teacher and undergraduate assistants.  The class is ideal for families looking for a full-day kindergarten with a nurturing and child-centered approach.  The program combines a kindergarten curriculum with opportunities for active play and social interaction.  The school day runs from 8:45am to 2:30pm.
