NURTURING Curiosity at its peak.
In Preschool at Far Hills Country Day School, we nourish curiosity at its peak. Our students play, explore, and create as they discover how things work, answers to their questions, and ways of communicating their thinking and designs to others, which often include words and numbers.
With deep dedication, we honor the many nuances of a child’s individual social-emotional development. We highlight support of social problem solving and help develop empathy in our students. Starting in Preschool, students are wholly supported by a tight-knit school community as they achieve at the highest levels while developing a lifelong love of learning through challenging academics and character development.
