Our Philosophy

The Country Village Day School mission is to be an excellent early childhood education program providing quality care for children ages six weeks through Pre-K. Our goal is to consistently embody the qualities found in a loving home–a caring, nurturing, safe and educational atmosphere.

We promote learning through the use of age appropriate educational methods and materials. Our goal is to prepare each child for elementary education and personal growth through a healthy and stimulating environment.

Our teachers and staff are our most valued and important assets. We strive to attract and retain only the highest caliber of staff dedicated to fulfilling our mission. We encourage and support their ongoing professional development and growth.

The school was founded on the belief that our children are the future. Through our loving, play- centered learning programs, we build in our children a strong sense of self-esteem, respect for all peoples and the environment, communities, our nation, and our world.

Enrichments and Specialists


Country Village Day School offers specialist enrichements to the regular classroom curriculum three days a week.  Specialists offer instruction in music and language and literacy. Each specialist visits the classroom for 15-30 minute segments.  Specialists offer new perspective and expertise in these designated areas.  Their instruction does not replace music, movement, language or literacy in the classroom curriculum, but enhances development in these areas.  Specialists are typically offered during the School Year/Fall Program.  We also have several "extra" programs available to your child requiring additional registration and fees.
