Primary (Grades K-3)

A child’s natural enthusiasm for learning

Welcome to the Primary Years, where The Country School Mission is alive each day. Encompassing young learners in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade, this private elementary school program appreciates and respects a child's natural enthusiasm for learning, curiosity about the world, and joy in being part of a special community.

Primary Years

In Kindergarten, children are developing the foundation of their social/emotional life. That is why we make it a point to teach student to their individual strengths, with specially curated curriculum that helps build a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning, discovery and joy.

The program is designed to include a thoughtful balance appropriate to the developmental stage of the different grade levels. Each day, children will experience vigorous activity and quiet time; traditional academic subjects along with the arts, physical education, STEAM, and global language; time inside the classroom and time outdoors; whole group instruction and individual attention.
