Choosing a childcare provider is an important decision for a family. At GCDS ECEC, we value our role in our child's life and find it an honor to be an extension of your family. The infant, toddler, and preschool stages are full of development and discovery. We teach children to learn through play while enriching their days, focusing on social and emotional growth to lay a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning.​

Pre-K5 through 5th Grade

Gainesville Country Day School emphasizes active learning and activities designed to encourage independence and creativity.  Attention is given to utilizing basic skills and applying them in increasingly complex projects and activities.  Our curriculum consists of integrated subject matter areas and flexible curricular experiences designed to meet the needs of children of different levels of ability and experience.  Our low student-teacher ratio makes it possible to provide a varied and stimulating range of learning experiences for each child. 

Why Gainesville Country Day School

Our Approach

Our curriculum emphasizes active rather than passive learning and activities are designed to encourage independence and creativity.


We would love to share how we can work in partnership with you and your family to provide your child with an education that will enable them to be their best.
