    Wilmington Friends is pleased to host a free morning program each Thursday for children 18-36 months and their parents/caregivers.  

    The Learning Lab is located at the Friends Lower School and is led by an experienced early-years teacher. Due to popularity, we now offer two sessions: Thursday mornings, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. or 10:45 to 11:45 a.m. Sessions will resume October 6, 2016.
