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.

Daily Schedules

While each class maintains a daily schedule, teachers are open and aware that with children, things change frequently and without much warning.  Our schedules provide the structure and predictability to the day that the children need while remaining open enough for changes in weather, projects, field trips, visitors, etc.
