Elmwood Day School, Westchester County:
Located in White Plains in Westchester County, NY, Elmwood Day School (formerly Elmwood Nursery School) has been providing excellent early childhood education to Lower Westchester since 1957. Elmwood proudly celebrates its transition to the Elmwood Day School, providing classes for children ages two through first grade. We strive to create an environment that allows each child to feel safe, known, comfortable, and accepted. We offer morning and afternoon classes for children ages two through first grade. Enrichment opportunities include Young Authors, Drama Around the World, Cooking, Sports, Art, Science, and Young Architects. Our integrated curriculum, based on New York State standards, fosters abstract and concrete thinking skills. Spontaneous play, teacher-directed, and child-initiated activities help children develop a strong awareness of themselves and the world around them.
We are committed to the reality that every child is unique. We are here to provide a warm loving, supportive atmosphere in which each child may feel free to express him or herself, learn, grow and realize his or her potential.
We will create an environment which allows each child to feel safe, known, comfortable and accepted for whom he or she is. We believe that children thrive when they are loved, treated with respect and given opportunities to experience learning in a developmentally appropriate program.
We understand and acknowledge the importance of each child’s family. In doing so, we strive to maintain open and supportive communication with parents in order to create an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust.
