    About Us > Careers

City and Country School is a coeducational independent, progressive school for children ages 2–13 in Greenwich Village. Children at City and Country develop responsibility and a strong sense of community through group experiences such as block building and work with other open-ended materials in the Lower School, and group jobs in the Middle and Upper School. Through trips, books, and opportunities for other first-hand experiences, children learn to ask questions and conduct meaningful research. We believe the teacher’s place is alongside the child, posing questions that elicit imaginative thinking, problem-solving and decision-making in pursuit of a deeper perspective. An underlying respect for children, the group process, and a social-studies driven, interdisciplinary approach are among the hallmarks of our program.

Central to our mission and philosophy is our deep commitment to community. Creating meaningful connections inspires us and centers our work with each other and with the children. Click here to learn more about our community.
