The philosophy of The Country Day School is to provide the
best in early childhood education. The
program’s focus is on developing children’s pleasure and excitement for
learning, increasing their ability to problem solve, and fostering an awareness
and enjoyment of their individual physical capabilities. The school also concentrates on helping each
child develop a positive self-concept, respect and empathy for others, and the
ability to become a constructive and contributing member of a group.
The foundation of the educational program at The Country Day
School is an early childhood developmentally based curriculum that encourages
the growth of children’s thought processes, the development of their conceptual
understanding, and their ability to observe, analyze, predict, and make
conclusions about the world. The program
also strives to kindle in the children an appreciation for the beauty of our
natural surroundings as well as an understanding of their responsibility to
conserve and nurture their world.
Out-of-doors learning activities are an important part of the curriculum
and are integrated into many units of study.
