Welcome to the Rumson Country Day School Lower School where children learn to love learning.
RCDS's Lower School, Nursery through Grade Four, provides students with seven years of dynamic growth and activities!! We offer our students an exciting education that encompasses the intellect and imagination. We have high but reasonable expectations for all our students in a supportive, loving environment.
The Lower School is a lively, happy place with dedicated teachers and a stimulating curriculum, which is anchored in best practices. A walk through our hallways and into the classrooms will show you many different types of activities on any given day. In RCDS's Lower School students take their first steps into a school career filled with the joy of learning.
At RCDS our Lower School Program is set up to meet the needs of Nursery through grade 4 students in all areas of growth-academic, social and personal. Our small class size encourages a "family" feel to everything we do. Communication with parents is important and a hallmark of the RCDS experience. We encourage a partnership, built through strong communication, and we offer many experiences where parents can volunteer and be a part of their child's education. Together we believe we will assist each child to grow and develop to his /her potential.
