At Children’s Country Day School, we believe that children learn best — and remember what they learn — by actively participating in the learning process.
Learning by doing is the principle that guides every lesson in our classrooms.
Doesn’t it seem obvious that one learns to swim by swimming with guidance rather than reading about swimming? The same logic applies to writing, calculating, computing and experimenting — any form of intellectual pursuit.
Our goal in science class is to engage students as scientists; in history class, as historians. In and around our colorful, comfortable classrooms, countless invitations and opportunities abound for children to explore, experiment, problem solve, analyze and communicate.
Our class size of 10 to 15 students allows us the opportunity to know each student as a unique individual.
Our expert team of teachers can thus offer deeper and more meaningful challenges and support to enrich and enhance the educational experience.

School Notes:

  • We believe in open communication and mutual respect among all staff, children and parents. We encourage honest, supportive relationships and we are committed to making each individual feel valued and appreciated, thus fostering a sense of community within the entire group. This philosophy is further exemplified by the fact that teachers, students and parents communicate on a first name basis. Active family involvement supports student learning and we extend ourselves in whatever ways necessary to accommodate families and to bridge the gap between home and school. We believe in the value of networking, sharing ideas and resources, among teachers and the parent community. We believe that teachers, parents and students should approach learning as a life-long endeavor. The Children’s County Day School provides a developmentally appropriate curriculum that promotes the growth of the whole child. The academic curriculum for each level focuses on hands-on-activities that include a wide variety of multi-sensory learning experiences. Each child is encouraged to be a thinker, to solve problems both independently and collaboratively, and to express ideas in a free and creative manner. To instill a love for reading, the staff emphasizes the importance of literature by incorporating quality children’s books into their classrooms everyday. The literature-based approach to reading and writing, combined with numerous opportunities for self-discovery, makes learning for children not only more exciting, but also more meaningful. In addition to the classroom academic curriculum, students are also enriched by specials such as Spanish, art, cooking, physical education, music and recorder.
