Welcome to Northern Lights School! Established in 1996, Northern Lights School is a nature based, Waldorf-inspired school for the very young and their families.

NLS is thrilled to announce a new program for children 6 weeks to 36 months named Nestling Nursery.  This program follows the Continuity of Care model from NYS Office of Children and Family Services which offers the same team of caregivers for this mixed age group, allowing for a beautiful, loving relationship to evolve between parents, children, and caregivers.

Class sizes are limited, enroll today!  We have space in our 3-5 year old Morning Garden class.  New procedures and policies are in place in accordance with the CDC, NYS Department of Health, and NYS Office of Children and Family Services.  Our Reopening Plan can be found here:  NLS Reopening Plan August 14, 2020

Call to schedule a personal tour with a teacher, see our classrooms, have tea and bread.  Northern Lights School has so much to offer children and families in a unique setting and personalized programming.  Let us share with you!
