Country Day School

The Country Day School is located on four beautiful wooded acres that provide a stimulating and enriching learning environment for young children. ... The school's two historical classroom buildings with unique classrooms and nine playgrounds provide the perfect locations for learning both inside and outside of the classroom. The main building is named after the school's founder, Dorothy McCormick, and is home to six classrooms, a science room, an art studio, a library, and several porches that are used as outdoor classrooms during good weather. The Cottage building, located behind the main building, houses six additional classrooms, a multi-purpose room, kitchen, and faculty work area. During the summer camp program the children have the opportunity to learn how to swim in the heated pool designed specifically as a training pool for young children. Highlights of The Country Day School grounds are the many playgrounds named for their trees or other significant natural features. Each play area provides different physical challenges for young children and the children's outside time is scheduled so they may experience all the playgrounds on a rotating basis. In addition the school's movement program is held outdoors on the various playgrounds whenever possible. The outdoor areas of the school are also used to enhance the school's science curriculum offered both in the classroom and in the Nature Room by the science teacher. Using the grounds, the children learn about different animals and their habitats, birds, and insects and grow their own vegetables and plants in the school garden. The children particularly enjoy the nature trail known as the “North Woods” where they observe the life cycles of various plants and the ecological changes to the forest. The National Wildlife Federation has labeled the school's grounds as a “Certified School Yard Habitat,” a perfect place for young children to experience nature on a daily basis.

The Manor Montessori School

About Our School Founded in 1962, The Manor Montessori School was the first Montessori school established in the State of Maryland. It is also one of... the few Montessori schools to have constructed its own facility, in Potomac, which was specifically designed for children working in a Montessori environment. The Manor Montessori School provides a warm and nurturing atmosphere for children between the ages of two and nine. Campuses Our main campus, located in Potomac (off of Falls Road), offers classes at the Toddler (age 2) level, the Primary (ages 3-6) level and the Elementary (ages 6-9) level. Our second campus, located in Rockville (near Tuckerman Lane), offers classes at the Toddler (age 2) level and the Primary (ages 3-6) level. Our third campus, located in Bethesda, offers classes at the Toddler (age 2) level and the Primary (ages 3-6) level. ​Programs The Twos program is for the two year old child who need not be potty trained. It is available five days per week from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon or 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at all three locations. It is a loving and nurturing environment, as it is the child's first school experience. The Primary program is for those children who are three years old by September and potty-trained. At the Primary level we offer a half-day program from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or a full-day program from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., five days per week.

The hours are 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The three year old children are required by the Health Department to have a nap/rest period, which takes place after lunch. If a 3 year old child does not nap, after a short rest period, the staff member will allow the child to join her at a table to look at books, draw, paint, or do puzzles. The four year old children who no longer need a nap are placed in the enrichment program where Montessori materials are offered along with art, science, music, cooking, and story reading. Between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., all children from all classes are combined to eat a snack at 3:00 p.m. We offer a relaxed atmosphere with story time, arts, crafts, music, and dance. We also offer free play indoors or outdoors until the children are picked up. We ask that parents arrive by 5:45 p.m. to assure that pick up will be on time. A late charge will be applied for any child picked up after 6:00 p.m.
