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.
