Easton Country Day School is a small, coed private school for grades Pre-K through 12. We cultivate a caring and supportive atmosphere that fosters social and emotional growth along with academic dexterity. Set on ten acres in a wooded area in central Easton, our grounds include a lovely playground, athletic fields, and a large, well appointed building with space for all types of learning experiences.
The Little Phoenix is Easton Country Day School’s Early Childhood Program. We provide a learning environment where the values taught at home are echoed and strengthened, and where the children feel safe and loved. We help our youngest students to develop towards their full academic, moral, creative and physical potential in an environment that fosters respect and loving-kindness. We aim to promote excellence in individual academic, social, and physical development.
Our strong academics are vertically integrated, allowing individuals to progress at their own speed (instead of being confined in one-size-fits-all, age-determined grade levels). Our graduates are consistently accepted into all of the area’s competitive private high schools and boarding schools. Those who choose public high schools are generally placed in honors classes.
More importantly, our students grow into emotionally secure and socially capable adolescents. That’s because an ECDS education involves small classes, plenty of adult interaction, and formal programs that encourage constructive relationships. Our unusually low 5:1 student-to-teacher ratio permits ECDS faculty to keep a watchful eye on all of the children. We intervene at the first hint of risky social behavior, and handsomely reward the earliest expressions of integrity.
In keeping with our whole-family approach, ECDS offers Pre-School classes for ages 2 years and up, and daycare for ages 3 months and up.
Easton Country Day School is situated on a quiet, beautiful property just across from the Library. Our large classrooms are bright and cheerfully decorated, while our grounds include an intricate playground and expansive athletic fields. ECDS facilities provide an excellent backdrop for a diverse and fulfilling elementary school education.
