Our trip itinerary will offer adventure, imagination, hands-on play and the all-important fun with friends ages 3-10 through Wichita Friends School’s SummerFUN! Program.
Now is the time to register for “Passport Kids!”, this year’s theme. At less than $2.75 / hour for 7am – 6pm Monday-Friday coverage, it is one bargain adventure (and there’s even a sibling discount too). Just bring your lunch and we take care of the snacks. Sign up for the entire trip or visit specific countries by week. Our Early Childhood Director, Pam Jessup, will be our experienced tour guide.
Our “visits” will include discovering games played by children from around the world, learning to track our travels on a map, wondering how these children live, speaking new words in foreign languages, cooking and tasting new foods, learning songs from different cultures, and a generous mix of art, story time, special visitors, photography, gardening, plenty of physical activity with outdoor playtime, sports, water activities and fun field trips. Our travel days even incorporate time for devotions.

Now enrolling for the 2017-2018 school year!
The 2017-2018 school year promises to be a great one for the “Coolest School on the West Side.”
We will continue to build on the foundation of the things we know you value; a faith based program, small class size, a warm welcoming atmosphere, and a place your child feels safe to discover and explore something new every day.
Wichita Friends School (WFS) is an AdvancEd accredited, private Quaker school located in west Wichita. We embrace diversity at WFS, including all faiths and belief systems. WFS is committed to nurturing and challenging the intellectual curiosity and creativity of each child.
Small class sizes enable our teachers to create a caring classroom atmosphere which helps our children discover their own unique gifts, learning at their pace. Students consistently score above national averages and leave our school well-equipped to succeed in their next level of education. The rich history of Quaker education provides a nurturing atmosphere wherein children learn the values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship (SPICES) within the rich academic and social environment.
Through daily devotionals, weekly worship time, Biblical teaching, and uplifting music, your child will come to know God’s love and find joy in all of His creation. Small class sizes, individualized education, and an emphasis on the SPICES make Wichita Friends School a unique learning community. It’s the right place to start a love for life-long learning. We hope you’re now excited and will bring your family for a visit. Observing a class and meeting faculty and staff are the best ways to assess your family’s fit as members of the WFS community. Call today to schedule a time. We look forward to meeting you!
