The Country Day School maintains the philosophy that children and adults can learn to use their inner resources for deeper levels of awareness, for innovative answers, for creating successful experiences, for energy and relaxation, and for making responsible decisions.
The Country Day School feels a deep responsibility to open new doors to learning and to integrate a maximum inner awareness with the forces of the outer environment, always striving toward a harmonious blend of the two.
The curriculum, methods, techniques, and tools for expanding and cultivating a deeper awareness of human potential will be selected and developed by a highly qualified and creative staff and educational consultants.
At The Country Day School, individualized, small group, and whole class instruction are implemented by the teachers daily. A multi-level, multi-sensory approach will be used in both individualized and shared experiences.
Diverse classroom project work is extended through careful planning and integration with movement, drama, music and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) teachers. Regular class trips and access to professional experts provide ample opportunities to learn outside of the classroom, enhancing lessons with real-world experiences.
We emphasize and encourage play – children need the freedom of time and space to pursue their own ideas – to be children.
All parts are interconnected and the whole person needs to be developed and integrated – mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally.
