School Closed November 23, 24
Young World Day School's mission is to provide a standard of educational excellence in academic and practical life in a learning environment designed to nurture the two to eleven year old child's love of learning. As our children proceed through the grades, we support the eager pursuit of knowledge, the confidence to take academic risks, and the ability to think logically and creatively. Integrity, initiative, independence, responsibility, consideration for others, self-respect and pride in learning are the hallmarks of our students and staff.
Pre K through Grade 5
At Young World Day School, a not for profit school serving Bergen, Passaic and Rockland Counties, we believe an outstanding Pre-k through grade 5 private school should be dedicated to the educational advancement and personal growth of every child. That's why we have created an educational environment that ties instruction and expectations to each student's abilities, rather than their chronological age.
To realize this, multi-graded classrooms play important roles in our Primary School. In grades Kindergarten through 5, a rotating multi-year curriculum delivers open-ended, diversified assignments designed to suit each child. In addition, by assigning a teacher and an assistant to each Kindergarten class - and at least two certified teachers to each of the older classes - we can provide every student with individualized learning experience necessary to take their education to even higher levels.
From our Traditional and Montessori Pre-School programs to our Primary School curriculum, each student cultivates the skills needed to succeed on his or her own terms - and establishes a love of learning each will carry throughout life.
