Young World Day School offers a Traditional Preschool Program and a Montessori Program. Here is one of our Montessori students working with the moveable alphabet to build language art skills.
Clifford makes a visit each fall to Young World during our Parent Teacher Group (PTG) led Scholastic Book Fair week.
Young World Day School has outstanding games and sports offerings during Physical Education and Health classes and hosts special events like a Walk-A-Thon and Field Day.
Young World Day School has a history of enriching our students' educational experience with the fine arts. Here, students enjoy developing their artistic abilities with an art project during one of many classroom holiday/cultural events.
At Young World, we believe participating in the 100th Day of School with an original googly eyes masterpiece is just what every Kindergartner needs to experience!
One of the amazing things about Young World is we offer our students their needed outside playtime so they even go to recess in the snow!
Students here are hard at work to begin the seedlings for the garden. Led by our Trail Club (outdoor classroom), our classes are able to be involved in the planting, watering, nurturing and caring for our garden...ultimately getting to harvest it!
Young World partners with local businesses to participate in Earth Day where our students are able to learn about recycling and caring for our earth.
- At Young World Day School - a not-for-profit school serving children from Bergen, Passaic, and Rockland counties - we believe an outstanding Pre-K through grade 5 private school should be dedicated to the educational advancement and personal growth of every child.
- That's why we've created an educational environment that ties instruction and expectations to each student's abilities, rather than their chronological age.

We live in an excellent public school system, however, my child came from Montessori with such a strong foundation that Young World Day School's academics were the absolute best match for us. They welcomed us & supported us in the decision to advance our child a grade based on ability. We feel it was the best decision we could have ever made & continue to be extremely impressed with the family atmosphere, the flexibility for individual needs & the amazing approach to teaching children YWDS has. Their teachers are tops & have allowed our child to flourish & keep engaged with a love for learning!

My children received an excellent education, as 6th graders they went on to other private schools, and now are attending excellent universities. I attribute their academic success to the strong foundation formed at Young World Day School.

Changes to the Tax Code in late 2017 included the addition of saving for K-12 private school education to 529 plans. We take a look at what this means for families thinking about private school for their children.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.

Hundreds of private schools, and for that matter, public schools, outside the United States will be happy to have you as a teacher for a few years.
