We appreciate your consideration of our school for your child during these most important years of growth, development, and learning. Here at Country Day Montessori School of Raleigh (CDM) we educate the whole child because "each child is constantly working towards the person they will become..." (Maria Montessori)




Country Day Montessori School of Raleigh (CDM) has rapidly become Raleigh's premiere choice for Montessori education. Close attention to detail, coupled with highly qualified educators and administrators, make our school one of the best in the triangle area.


Country Day Montessori School is nestled on a beautiful two acre shaded campus, which makes for a perfect backdrop when teaching your child. CDM offers the best in a Montessori education and the best in a child development center. Our staff has over 100 years of combined experience in early education! Our location is conveniently located to nearby NC State, downtown Raleigh and Cary. In addition, we are one of the few Montessori Schools in the Triangle area to offer full time/full day programs to accomodate the schedules of working parents. We admit children ages six weeks through six years on a rolling admissions basis (as space allows). Our entire staff welcomes your family to our program.




Dr. Maria Montessori believed that every child delights in spontaneous activity directed towards intellectual discovery. The attitudes and confidence developed during these formative years will serve the child throughout their lifetime. Students at CDM are honored and respected as the unique individuals that they are. In a Montessori environment, your child will develop a sense of order, concentration, coordination and independence. Thus, values such as compassion, harmony, and justice develop naturally in our environment.




We understand that choosing a school can be a challenging and difficult decision. We know that we offer a great experience. At CDM we are focused on the child. Country Day Montessori School of Raleigh is committed to sharing the responsibilities with parents in helping each child reach his or her potential in a safe, warm and loving environment. We are confident that you and your family will find your time with our family and in our community to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
