Nature

The Nature Program at Children’s Country Day not only gives children an opportunity to explore and learn about our natural world, but also provides a foundation for social, emotional, and academic growth. Nature based learning takes place through hands-on experiences.

Animal Adventures

Animals are part of our school’s program and maintained by the staff and children. They are properly cleaned and cared for on a daily basis. The children play a role in the care of these animals. Both children and adults wash their hands after handling pets and other animals or any materials that come into contact with animals. Our goal is to provide children with the opportunity to develop a sense of responsibility and importance in caring for a living being.

Swimming

We have two swimming pools at Country Day. What a great way to cool off on a hot summer day while learning valuable life skills! All children who visit the larger pool begin camp wearing a life jacket, supplied by CCDS, and are accompanied by our lifeguard as well as their camp teacher(s). Only older children who pass a skills assessment will be able to swim without a life jacket.

Art

Art activities are always an adventure as small groups of children, along with their teacher, visit the art specialist. While participating in hands-on nature-themed arts and crafts, the children develop creativity while using a wide variety of materials.
