About Us

At Countryside, we are committed to a balanced learning-through-play environment. We believe that each child is a unique individual who develops at his or her own pace. We are dedicated to the pure enjoyment of childhood and the natural desire to learn and grow. Families have chosen us for their child care needs for over 23 years and some of our former students now bring their children to us.

Quality Child Care

Our curriculum is aligned with the RI Early Learning & Development Standards which outline a comprehensive system of high quality early childhood programs for young children birth through age five. Developmentally-appropriate curriculum is used to promote learning through play in each of our programs.

The educators on our team are highly qualified, dedicated professionals who have a genuine love for children and the field of Early Childhood Education.

Our low teacher-to-student ratios ensure that the needs of each individual child are consistently met.

About our Facility

Our early learning center features seven classrooms and two spacious, outdoor playgrounds which are age-divided to provide generous space for multiple gross and fine motor skill activities.

A Registered Nurse is on site daily to assist children and their families with medical needs and developmental milestones.

The flexibility of our programming enables families to design schedules that fit their needs - ranging from eight hours a week to full-time care
