South Orange Country Day School's Full Profile



South Orange Country Day School says

SOCDS is a culturally-diverse private preschool offering a Montessori learning experience for students from 2 1/2 years of age through Kindergarten. We strive to engender wonder and excitement about learning. Our students work with materials designed to appeal to a child's senses, especially touch and sight. Our classrooms are filled with stimulating and attractive materials arranged within easy reach. Each student is encouraged to investigate the world so that learning becomes natural and joyful. Special games teach science, mathematics, language, social skills and confidence. Child's play becomes serious learning! Classes meet from 8:30am to 3:30pm, M-F. Half-day programs are available. Attuned to the busy schedules of modern parents, SOCDS also offers supervised before-school care starting at 7:30am and after-school care until 6:00pm. The school features a full summer camp program with weekly themes.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
