Mountain Lakes Country Day School News

Testimonials from Parents

  • Gene, an Infant parent says:
    "Dropping off your child every day to be in the care of someone else is one of the most difficult things for a parent to do.  However, our son's primary caregiver at Mountain Lakes Country Day School did an amazing job and is an amazing person.  There was never any concern when he was in her care.  We had no problem calling her, asking her questions or for advice.  And most importantly, there was never any question regarding how much love he was receiving from her and the entire staff.  We trusted every caregiver in that room like we would trust our own family."
  • Beth and Alan, parents of a Preschooler and Kindergartener say:

     We have two children that have attended MLCDS and have to say the staff goes above and beyond to make the children feel great about coming to school, excited to learn every day and the teachers and classroom assistants are very caring and compassionate when dealing with each and every student.  Our children have been more that prepared for public school after attending MLCDS.
     The Preschool, Pre-K and Kindergarten curriculum at Mountain Lakes Country Day School have prepared our children with readiness skills, reading skills and math skills that have given them a nice foundation for which to build upon as they go forward in their school careers.  We thank you very much for all that you do in this school!"

  • Lisa an Infant parent says:

    "When my son is at MLCDS, I feel at ease because I know that he is being treated with love and care from all of the staff. My husband and I truly believe that our son is gaining so much from being part of this school. He loves playing with his friends, looks forward to seeing the teachers and is learning so many different things.
      Mountain Lakes Country Day School provides our son with structure, opportunities to learn, individualized care when needed and they clearly love him and care about his development."

  • Karin, parent of a Kindergartener says:

    "Our son started at Mountain Lakes Country Day School when he was five months old. When he was six months old, I experienced a major health crisis. when he was 17 mths old, he was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Through it all, the MLCDS staff have been incredibly supportive of our family as a whole. My son has stayed at MLCDS through Kindergarten, instead of going to our township school, because we have felt that strongly about the excellent care and education he is getting at MLCDS. I would highly recommend any parent seriously think about sending their child there, even children with mild special needs, because the staff is that good with the kids. My son would not be as successful academically and socially as he is today if not for the care he's received at MLCDS."

  • Genny, parent of a Toddler and Infant, says:

    "I worry about a lot of things, but I don't worry about my kids when they are at Mountain Lakes Country Day School."
