Greentrees Country Day School believes that children should grow through a variety of experiences, with challenging activities that encourage each child’s growth socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. We are committed to showing our students not just that learning can be fun, but that IT IS FUN!
Our curriculum is based on the foundations and principles of High Scope, which promotes the development of independence and critical thinking skills by encouraging students to make choices, to explore and ask questions, to solve problems and to interact with their classmates.
In our Pre-K classes, emphasis is placed on alignment with the Preschool Foundations for the Common Core, the New York State approved learning benchmarks. Your child will acquire the foundation of reading, mathematics, science and social studies in a setting that nurtures discovery as the basis for learning opportunity.
Ultimately, we strive to find the "sweet-spot" between kindergarten preparedness, and an approach to learning that values how children learn best... through hands-on, discovery-based experiences.

The attention to detail from all teachers and staff has always been great. My child always feels happy to go to school, loves her teacher, and is stimulated. We love you! We thank you!
