At Young World Day School — a not-for-profit school serving children from Bergen, Passaic, and Rockland counties — we believe an outstanding Pre-K through grade 5 private school should be dedicated to the educational advancement and personal growth of every child.

That's why we've created an educational environment that ties instruction and expectations to each student's abilities, rather than their chronological age.

My children received an excellent education, as 6th graders they went on to other private schools, and now are attending excellent universities. I attribute their academic success to the strong foundation formed at Young World Day School.
