The end depends on the beginning

about us

Our Philosophy

At Carlsbad Country Day School, we believe that a strong academic base developed through play and practice will build a foundation for future academic success. While we believe that play is the primary vehicle for children's learning and development in the early years, teacher directed learning develops the child as a whole and is therefore an essential aspect of your child’s first school experience.

Carlsbad Country Day School welcomes the participation of parents in our program and extend an open invitation to parents to become involved. We believe that ongoing communication with parents enhances the development of the children in our care.
