  • Glenwood Country Day School is unique! With only eight students per class our curriculum is tailored for your child.
  • The curriculum has both the flexibility to address each child's learning style and the structure to provide a coherent framework of clearly defined goals.
  • We devote so much attention to this process because we want to give our students the best opportunity to succeed and feel great about their accomplishments.

We moved to GCDS after not being satisfied with our former daycare/preschool. GCDS has taught my 4 year old to read and my two year old can count with a purpose. They have fun but are still learning extremely fast! My children do not have any learning issues such as ADHD, dyslexia, etc. Sure there are cheaper options but you get what you pay for. Best decision we ever made.
