With this new expansion it is going to be even more successful...God bless you and welcome to our business district."
The ribbon cutting was held in the new STEAM Lab. The Lab is affectionately named "Miss Mimi's STEAM Room" after a beloved teacher Dr. Mariana "Mimi" Pedro-Medlin who passed in October of 2018. Her husband Jay Medlin was at Sunday's ribbon cutting and commented, "My wife Mimi was a school psychologist for many years, and she loved more than anything to work with young children. She changed her career and she decided to work here and found so much joy in doing so. She really loved to work here."
The Country Day School of Colts Neck (CDSCN) has been providing excellent childcare and educational instruction since 2007. Class sizes are kept small and if you are going back to work after baby is born, there is an infant care program with a 1 to 2 caregiver to child ratio, providing unparlalled care. The CDSCN mantra is; "Our nurturing staff ensures that every child feels welcome, special and loved."
CDSCN's classrooms are colorful and welcoming, the staff warm and friendly. The walls are full of children's artwork and inspirational messages. The new STEAM Lab has learning stations with exciting activities like butterfly metamorphising, plant growing, an engineering corner and so much more to engage and excite young minds.
At CDSCN learning is fun! The children are immersed in an interactive playful learning environment where social interaction is made enjoyable for everyone.
The Country Day School offers flexible full time and part time schedules and drop in care to meet every need for registered students and their families. Your child does not already have to be potty trained to begin at CDSCN.
All of the CDSCN teachers are experienced and certified to teach pre-k and early education. All of the teachers and administrators are trained in CPR and first aid.
