Welcome from the Head of School
Country Day is a play and nature based NAEYC accredited school where nature and nurture come together to offer excellence in early childhood education.
Our four acres of picturesque hillside in historic Langley Fork consists of nine playgrounds, a butterfly garden, nature trail, two education buildings, a nature room, and a library.
Our extensive grounds allow us to have an outdoor program using our nine playgrounds as our classrooms. We design our educational programs using our lush grounds to connect children with nature. Our experienced staff uses all that nature has to offer to teach the children to explore and learn about the world around us in a safe environment.
The school is staffed by experienced early childhood educators who understand the developmental needs of preschoolers and kindergartners. Teachers engage the children in both small group and individual activities taking advantage of the many wonderful outdoor classroom experiences.
The CDS mission statement commits the school to a “strong parent-school partnership,” to “offer ongoing sequential parent education,” and to “welcome active parent participation in the school’s programs.” Parents have many opportunities to participate in classroom activities and Parent Representative Organization (PRO) events. Parents are greatly encouraged to become part of our strong and supportive community.
The Country Day School staff is committed to making your child’s first preschool experience a good beginning for many years of school success and achievement. Please explore our website and contact us to arrange a visit to our beautiful campus or have a virtual tour.
