City and Country School, for children ages 2 – 8th grade, is an historically significant and leading progressive school founded in 1914 by pioneer educator Caroline Pratt. Located in Greenwich Village in New York City, C&C occupies seven landmark brownstones and their adjoining internal courtyards. Classrooms are equipped with ample space, natural light, and an abundant supply of carefully chosen materials. The teaching of sophisticated academic and social skills is contextualized through the use of Pratt’s creation: wooden indoor unit blocks, as well as her famed Jobs Program. Children solidify their leadership, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills in powerful and practical contexts, as well as develop a deep sense of responsibility and resourcefulness. Students graduate from City and Country School as creative thinkers with a true excitement for learning and the ability to collaborate and problem solve in any situation.
C&C's Jobs Program
City and Country School was founded on the belief that children learn best when they are engaged in real-life situations that are important to them. Unique to C&C, the Jobs Program allows children to continue to learn by doing and plays a central role in the School’s integrated curriculum. Click the link below to learn more.
