Jeffersonville Country Day School Makes A Difference
Our school is situated on an acre of maintained lawns and natural wooded areas. Children enjoy the school’s natural surroundings through nature studies and outside play. Our facility offers a clean, warm, home-like environment which is equipped with the most up-to-date and safest toys and learning materials. Three spaciously enclosed play areas with quality designed play equipment, a garden, and individual, as well as, group interaction toys encourage children’s active play, socialization and large muscle development.
