Small Friends on Nantucket

Small Friends on Nantucket was founded in 1988 by a group of working parents who desired worry-free, high-quality care and education for their young children. Since then, Small Friends has continually sought to enhance the quality of life for families and meet the needs of working parents by providing superior year-round care for the children of Nantucket, regardless of financial ability. Trained and nurturing professionals, certified by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care, work with children ages three months through 5 years old in a positive educational environment that values the individuality of every child. Small Friends is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and is the only center-based program on the island that takes infants and toddlers as well as preschool-aged children. The infant and toddler program is located on Vesper Lane and the pre-school campus is on Nobadeer Farm Road.

On Friday, July 13 from 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday, July 14 from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Small Friends on Nantucket and Nantucket Looms present The Event Under the Tent, the Nantucket Folk Art and Artisan Show. The Event Under the Tent features over 50 nationally and locally recognized folk artists showing and selling the finest in American craftsmanship.

The Small Friends Folk Art and Artisan Show preview party will take place Thursday, July 12. Come from 6-8 p.m. to meet the artists, enjoy a silent auction and hors d’oeuvres by Kendra Lockley of Simply with Style Catering.
