Inside Our Schools

Health, Safety & Security

The Country Day School are safe and secure by design. We work diligently to maintain the cleanliness of our facility as well as the safety of our furnishings and overall health of our children and their environment. Parents log their children in at the reception area, where no outsiders are allowed. All doors leading outside of the The Country Day School grounds are kept locked and only able to be opened through sophisticated technology. Our schools include an outdoor play area designed with age appropriate materials, protective fences, and well-maintained grounds to ensure the children’s safety. The entire school is continually monitored utilizing closed-circuit cameras in all classrooms as well as hallways and outdoor spaces. Staff members qualified to respond to life-threatening emergencies are always in attendance. Trained in pediatric first aid and CPR, staff members are always available to respond to a variety of emergency medical situations. In addition to our regularly instituted health and safety plan, emergency care products are also put in place for both minor and major incidents. Whatever the situation, our staff is confident and qualified to keep your most prized possession safe at all times.

The Country Day School is committed to protecting the safety and well-being of the children, your families and our staff. We are diligently watching the development of the Coronavirus and following recommendations by the Department of Health, Center for Disease Control, and World Health Organization to stay up to date on the most current information.


Our Educators


KLA Schools are staffed with caring, fun, and dedicated professionals. Participating regularly in professional development experiences, our teachers are constantly looking for ways to learn more about the best ways to teach our students. Observations of each child are taken throughout the day in addition to notes reflecting on weekly projections. Our educators are continually analyzing which ways children learn best as well as which teaching styles are most effective. Facilitators in their interactions with children, our educators work to align children interests with the learning domains in loving, nurturing, and positive ways which support students in feeling safe, loved, and valued. Our curriculum addresses the whole child including academic, physical, social and emotional domains.

We encourage them to think deeper and ask questions as they research different theories. It is of utmost importance that teachers and children alike invest in researching and collaborating together in order to be a part of each other’s learning process.

Parents as Our Partners


Parents are a crucial factor in our program. In fact, parents are our partners. Our teachers understand and respect that parents are their children’s first teacher. Their involvement in the school gives their children a sense of security and is deeply appreciated. We recognize that stable, quality relationships during the early years are fundamental for later developmental outcomes. Collaboration between teachers, parents and the children is an integral part of the educational experience at KLA Schools. Our goal is not simply to build a strong, warm and nurturing connection with each child, but to extend that connection to our community of parents. By working in a collaborative group setting, children learn critical life skills such as compromise, reasoning, respect for others’ opinions and enhancement of their sense of community. Through these partnerships, children benefit from experiencing many of the same principles at home that they do in school and thrive with this consistency. Teachers also offer frequent support our families and our communities through transparency and by being a source of information about educating a whole child and the various aspects of development.

Community Service

As part of our philosophy and educational approach, we believe it is essential to make visible the fact that each child knows and understands that we are all different and can co-exist peacefully. We have different ways of thinking, a fact we embrace. In fulfilling this vision, KLA Schools has formed relationships with charitable organizations within each of the communities it exists. Below you can read a bit more about our involvement with the following foundations.
