Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Based on the research of the world renowned educator, Dr. Maria Montessori, the program uses each child's unique individuality and personality as a basis for his/her educational endeavors. Willistown Country Day students utilize their firm foundation to gain success in all later educational ventures as well as in their ethical and moral development.
