Palisades Country Day School

  • Contemporary children live in a highly complicated world. Our job at Palisades Country Day School is to help them develop the proper skills and tools to cope successfully.
  • We do this by providing a challenging and stimulating environment designed specifically for the young child.
  • Educational materials are available to stimulate development in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
  • Our program also offers cultural enrichment through music and art, special events and guests, holiday celebrations and educational trips.
  • A physical education program has been designed for each age group to further round out the development of the whole child.
  • Along with this, they are learning the proper socialization skills with both adults and their peers.
  • Our program invites exploration, creative expression, discovery, problem solving and academic achievement at the intellectual level of each child.
  • John Dewey's credo was "teach the child to think, - not what to think." We believe that is the role of our school.
