Early Childhood Enrichment Center

Gainesville Country Day curriculum emphasizes creativity, problem-solving, and active rather than passive learning in preschool classes. We use a “hands-on,” multi-sensory approach to teach new concepts, as young children learn best through action.


If your child is 4 years old or older by Sept 1 of the current (or upcoming school year), check out our Pre-K5 program on the 24th Avenue Campus.

Learn Through Play

“Play is a child’s work.” This is a motto often heard at Gainesville Country Day School. Play has been found to contribute to children’s physical, mental, emotional, and social development. ​We want children to experience the joy of learning so that desire stays with them for a lifetime.

Infants & Toddlers

Offered Year-Round

Kinder Class & Pre-K4

Offered School Year or Year-Round

For our Kinder Class and Pre-K4 students, we offer flexibility in a year-round option or a calendar enrollment. The school calendar is very similar to 24th Avenue Campus schedule, with the same holidays for congruency between your children's schedules across ages.

Art Class

Kinder Class

2 1/2 - 3 1/2 years and toilet trained

Independence is a primary focus in the Kinder Class classroom. Children find immense satisfaction and self-confidence when practicing and mastering skills on their own. Letter and number concepts are explored while a consistent focus on learning through play is recognized.

Playing with Animals


3 1/2 years and toilet trained

As the final year on the Tower Road Campus, Pre-K4 offers students a place to grow and discover themselves. We continue to encourage independence and introduce letter and numbers to establish a firm academic foundation prior to their transition to Pre-K5.

Spanish & Music

Gainesville Country Day Senior Toddlers, Kinder Class, and Pre-K4 students have music and Spanish class every day. We strongly believe in the arts and language as important learning tools and means of self-expression.
