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.
