Early Childhood Center

ECC students

Welcome to the Early Childhood Education Center at The Rumson Country Day School!

The Early Years Program is anchored by three cornerstones; early literacy development, early numeracy exploration and play based learning. Children enter school joyfully to embark on exciting adventures each and every day. Teachers are warm and nurturing, and provide a classroom setting full of interesting challenges that help children grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.

Further enrichment is provided through co-curricular classes including Yoga, Spanish, PE, and Library. Rounding out the program are opportunities to learn from our community through both internal and external field trips.
