When choosing a school for your child, the big questions always come first.  What curriculum do they use? Will my child be challenged? Do they offer the resources and activities to meet my child’s needs?

For our family, those big questions drew us to Greensboro Day School. But it is the small things that keep us here. It is the fact that back-to-school night feels like a family reunion. It is the fact that everyone we interact with knows our child’s name and has at least one interesting comment to share about her day. When we drop her off each morning, we feel like we are leaving her with an extended family and a community that supports and advocates for her – as well as every other child under their care. It is the consistent dedication of every staff member to learn more, and their obvious love of what they do each day.

And when I stop and reflect, those things really aren’t so small. School can be just a place to learn, or it can be a community that works together, cares for one another and is always learning and growing. And what I want most for my daughter is that she develops a lifelong love of learning. As part of Greensboro Day’s community of learners, which is so much more than a group of students and educators, we have seen her flourish.

So, stop and think about the “small” things – those parts of your child’s education that may not be your first questions, but will make every day a great day.

Come meet Greensboro Day School’s community at our Open House for Pre-Kindergarten through 4th grade on October 10, 2013 from 6-8 pm.  Register online or contact the Admissions Office at 288-8590 for more information.
