Parent-Child Programming


Our Lower School has developed several programs designed to introduce both current and prospective students and parents/caregivers to the benefits of a Country Day education. These classes have been designed specifically for students ranging in age from 10 to 36 months and are held throughout the academic year.

Research shows that children who experience quality play are more likely to have well-developed memory skills and transition easily to more formal school and academic learning environments. Most importantly, life-long learning skills are developed at the earliest stages of child development.

Our play-based learning programs allow students to experiment, negotiate, create meaning, take risks, hone skills, follow instructions, build relationships, and feel good about themselves in a safe, supporting, and fun setting. This type of learning is the cornerstone of Country Day’s pre-primary program and engages children through sensory, movement, and visual engagement.

The programs below are offered throughout the year, require advanced registration, and have limited space availability.
