Country Day For Children

  • 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 5 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 early childhood development.
  • It is our mission to provide a motivating secure and harmonious environment for the children.
  • We treat each child individually with respect and 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.
