Country Day Montessori School is open year round, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am - 5:15 pm, one of the very few in the Triangle area with this calendar. This schedule allows working families to enroll their children in an authentic Montessori program with a calendar well beyond the traditional school day/year calendar of most Montessori programs.
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.
“At CDMS, my 18-month-old son is getting attentive instruction and genuine encouragement. The teachers revel in his developmental growth and often share in bragging of his progress week to week.”

"My little guy has been there since he was months old, and I have had the pleasure of observing the growth of not only him, but his classmates as well. I can say without a doubt that CDM offers an engaging and nurturing environment where each child is encouraged to thrive using his or her unique skillset. I can say without a doubt that his social, spatial, and cognitive skills are well above the mark, and CDM has definitely played a large part in his development. On a personal note, it is wonderful to have a kid who doesn't use plastic (cups or plates) at home, can clean up behind himself, and understands being gracious and cause and effect."

"CDMS is a best kept secret. The type of preschool that every parent dreams of (and it's full-day!)."

"Our daughter has just started her second year here at CDMS. We cannot rave enough about the engagement of the staff and professionalism of everyone involved in caring for our daughter. CDMS provides an engaging environment for all kids to thrive in. We love the experience our little one has been given, and we would highly recommend CDMS as a place to consider for your children."

“My son is doing things that my friends’ kids (in other schools) are not. Because of the Montessori method, he’s cleaning up, sweeping, washing his hands, feeding himself with utensils, rolling out his workmat, singing, talking and more.”

“We love the diversity of the school’s staff and the students.”

“My son loves his classmates, his teachers, and the school’s warm and nurturing environment.”

“Wonderful school! The staff is excellent and my children have excelled under their leadership. My boys have been there under two different managements and I love(d) them both. They have worked with me under variable conditions and are flexible. They also take the time to interact with parents during scheduled progress checks throughout the year to address the children’s development. I wouldn’t enroll them anywhere else!‎”

“Hands-on, Thumbs up!‎”
