Rye Country Day School

  • At Rye Country Day School children will enjoy active play areas both indoors and out.
  • Bright and cheerful play structures sit on an open expanse of field.
  • Wooded areas nearby promise guided nature exploration. Indoors, the large, carpeted recreation room is a welcome addition especially in inclement weather.
  • Here children will participate in active indoor play, movement, art, music and dance.
  • At Rye Country Day School, children, parents, and teachers enjoy the pleasure of playing, working, communicating, problem solving, serving, exploring, inventing, and building a stronger community.
  • Together we strive to make sense of our world and discover ways we can contribute to make it better with respect, acceptance, and friendship.
  • At Rye Country Day we provide a learning community for children and adults: a place where children are valued for their ability to do meaningful work, their wonder and curiosity, their perspectives, and their ability to play; a place where families are valued for their bonds and traditions, their commitment to work, home, and community, and their dreams for their children; a place where staff are valued for their vision, their delight in children, their skill, heart, and knowledge, a commitment to families, and an ability to play. We cherish what we learn from each other.
