West County Day School is dedicated to giving children an excellent early childhood education. Our center serves children age's six weeks to six years old through age appropriate classrooms, a Kindergarten and after school programs.
A large percentage of WCDS' staff hold bachelor degrees, with teachers working towards master degrees or certificates. Those without formal education have many years of experience in Early Childhood Education. Both our staff turnover and our family withdraw rate is very low, thus providing your child with a stable, secure environment.
Our program curriculum is consistent with the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the most comprehensive accrediting body overseeing childcare, preschool, and before and after school programs.
West County Day School integrates social skills training into the curriculum, on a daily, hourly, and by the minute basis. Teaching children to be able to communicate, negotiate, and express themselves clearly, to make good choices and to be able to ask for what they want is one of our main focuses. Children's future success and well being rests on how effectively they can navigate through the many situations they will be faced with throughout life. Within West County Day School you will discover a growing group of active, happy babies, toddlers and children who are learning daily how to make friends and to be a friend.
