Country Day For Children serves the educational needs of families of Palm Bay, West Melbourne and South Melbourne.
Our classes are provided for children ages 2.5 through 6 years old in Montessori preschool and kindergarten.
Country Day For Children is AMS affiliated and accredited by NIPSA and SACS.
At Country Day For Children we have a dedicated Montessori trained staff with an understanding of child development.
It is our mission to provide a motivating secure and harmonious environment for the children.
We treat each child individually with respect and we stimulate them to learn based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.
We believe that each child is different and so is their process of learning. Children are exposed to a variety of cultural experiences, which allows each child to learn about the world around them.
