Bellevue Country Day School's mission is to foster a love of learning in every child. We are committed to a curriculum of intentional play-based learning and hands-on experiences. Research now shows that neural pathways in children's brains are influenced and advanced in their development through exploration, thinking skills, problem solving and language expression that occur during play. Our objective is to provide a school experience where children learn by doing and where the environment and experiences are in tune with the personal characteristics of each student. We provide each child with:
A happy school experience; Setting the stage for positive future school years
Small and Large motor development
Social and emotional development
Opportunities for investigating the world, asking questions and problem solving
Concept building through experimentation
Pre-Kindergarten readiness skills (the ability to listen and talk and function in a group)
Enjoyment and self-confidence in art and music
Our bright, spacious facility is organized to promote free movement between various centers.
Blocks, puzzles, table toys, playhouse, library, easel, play dough, and multiple art activities are available daily. More structured activities include group concept time, science, music, snack, and sharing. Our enclosed outdoor area is used daily, weather permitting.
Bellevue Country Day School does not use aides - all of our teachers have college degrees and are experienced educators and life long learners.
