Pre-Kindergarten at
The Country School


We are thrilled to introduce you to The Country School's Pre-Kindergarten program for 4-year-olds, coming in the fall of 2019! 

As the construction of our new building moves along and the summer of 2019 makes way for renovations to our existing campus, we will be transforming our Upper School STEAM classroom into a modern, well-appointed Pre-K classroom that will accommodate 16 children and two teachers.

About Our Program

Just as we tell our Kindergarten parents, young children learn best by DOING. An effective learning environment results from a balance of hands-on, playful discovery and directed instruction. Varying levels of ability, development, and learning styles are both accepted and expected in Pre-K, and our expert teachers are skilled at and passionate about ensuring that each student has the best possible experience.

Because we have rolling admissions, families may complete an application at any time. Simply choose your child's entering year and grade, complete the application, and pay the $60 fee. Our Admissions Office will be in touch right away to discuss next steps.

Children must turn four prior to the start of school and readiness assessments will be conducted in February for early applicants. Priority will be given to siblings of current students, so early applications are strongly recommended.

Pre Kindergarten is a time for young children…

  • to learn about themselves, about being responsible individuals, and about working with others
  • to begin to develop sound work habits, skills, and a positive attitude toward learning
  • to explore and discover at an individual pace
  • to be adventuresome and to take risks in a supportive and nurturing environment
  • to experience challenging mental and physical activity
  • to discover the joys of learning and school
OUR PRE-K CLASSROOM

Engaging centers, tactile materials, modern furniture, and an in-classroom bathroom are just some of what will make your child's Pre-K experience at TCS a cut above the rest.

A serene, inviting color scheme and intuitive layout will be the backdrop for your child to learn, play, grow, and move about his or her classroom with confidence.
