Your child's educational experience starts in the Lower School where we emphasize successful beginnings. Students who feel good about their earliest experiences in school more easily establish a pattern of lifelong learning. Our Pre-K through Grade 5 classrooms are colorful, comfortable, and alive with activities, a setting that is at once both flexible and structured. Teachers strive to know not just what but how each student learns - intellectually, emotionally and behaviorally. You will find that the Country Day Lower School is unlike any other program in New Orleans.
