ABOUT NORTHERN LIGHTS SCHOOL
Northern Lights School is a non-profit organization founded in 1996 by a group of dedicated parents seeking an educational foundation for their children that would nurture whole-child development and a life-long love of learning. We have provided an alternative educational experience for area children for over 20 years and have offered parents a supportive community in which their children grow into confident and compassionate adult inspired to create positive change in the world.
Northern Lights School is located in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church in Saranac Lake, NY offering early childhood education to over 50 students.
We are a certified NYS daycare, Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK), and offer programming for the very young toddler. Northern Lights is also a developing member of the Waldorf Education Association of North America.
Community service is one of our core values. We offer over and above the UPK programming requirements, where most programs end at 11:30, we end at 12:30 pm. Parent support is another core value. Free educational parent evenings, community forums, and childbirth classes and dinners are all central to this support.
