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.

Our History

Barbara Stevenson founded Country Village Day School in 1971 to create a school whose primary mission was the loving care of children. Her goal was to provide the best possible care to encourage learning through developmentally appropriate practices and materials, as well as growth through a healthy, stimulating environment. The school she created embodies many of the qualities found in a loving home, such as an individualized, caring, safe, educational, and nurturing environment. Barbara retired in 1993, but we continue to carry on her mission. Contact Country Village Day School today to learn more about the excellent early childhood education staff taking care of your little one.
