Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten

PK

Country Day School’s pre-kindergarten offers a learning atmosphere that promotes inquiry, discovery, creativity and enthusiasm for learning. Nurturing teachers offer kindness and encouragement as children begin their educational journeys while building self-confidence and independence in each child. Children enjoy hands-on learning and an enormous amount of time exploring and playing in our beautiful outdoor classroom as well as in bright spacious indoor classrooms. Play is valued as a mode through which young children learn. Therefore, time is dedicated to spontaneous play and building gross motor skills, balanced with playful learning opportunities where lessons come to life.
