kids learning on the computer

Greentrees Country Day School and Camp provides a warm learning environment, a loving staff, flexible schedules, before and after care, an optional lunch program, vacation care, and transportation. Greentrees was designed to offer an intimate and safe environment where young children are encouraged to meet their full potential in a year-round program. Our goal is that every child looks forward to school each day. We are committed to showing our students that learning is fun!

The High/Scope Approach to Learning

Greentrees follows the New York State recommended curriculum. Toddler children (age 2) through those in First Grade take part in challenging school activities in a stimulating and creative environment. The curriculum, based on New York State standards and the High/Scope philosophy, forms the basis of the child centered learning program at Greentrees. Your child will acquire the rudiments of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. Inside every classroom, you will see children at play; initiating activities, and testing their skills, while they learn about social interaction. The High/Scope approach “promotes independence, curiosity, decision making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving -- the fundamental skills that help determine success in adult life.” In a Greentrees classroom, carefully selected staff members are highly trained, sensitive, enthusiastic and dedicated. The teaching staff facilitates an enriching, nurturing classroom environment where learning through discovery begins a lifelong love of learning.

Parent Involvment

At Greentrees Country Day School, we understand the key role parents play in their child’s education. Your child’s teacher will provide information about classroom activities in a weekly newsletter. Parent teacher conferences are held twice each year to discuss your child’s progress. Several parent workshops are offered throughout the year to cover a variety of topics such as a discussion suggesting activity ideas which help reinforce what is being learned in school. In trying to accommodate parents with various schedules, some of our workshops and events take place in the evening and on weekends.

We encourage family members to join the classroom for career sharing, celebrations, to be a secret reader or just to stop by. The children, their parents, teachers and the directors make up one big extended family.

Our Mission

The Greentrees Country Day School strives to help each child grow and develop to his/her maximum potential. We believe that children should grow through a variety of experiences, with challenging activities that encourage each child’s growth physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. Read More
