City and Country School is an independent, progressive school for children ages 2-13 in Greenwich Village. Children at City and Country develop responsibility and a strong sense of community through group experiences such as block building and work with other open-ended materials in the Lower School, and group jobs in the Middle and Upper School. Through trips, books and opportunities for other first-hand experiences, children learn to ask questions and conduct meaningful research. An underlying respect for children, the group process, and a social-studies driven, interdisciplinary approach are among the hallmarks of our program.
