For Educators

C&C’s founder Caroline Pratt always hoped to spread her philosophy of progressive education far beyond the walls of City and Country School. To that end, C&C has created opportunities to introduce teachers and administrators from other schools and backgrounds to our program.

We invite outside educators to visit C&C to witness our students and teachers in action during the school day. Learn more and register for a visit here. (Please note that educator visits are not being held at this time due to the impacts of COVID-19.) 

C&C’s Blocks program is one of the central components to our approach to educating young children. By training teachers to utilize blocks and other open ended materials with their students, C&C hopes to spread the philosophy of dramatic play as a key part of learning far and wide.

Caroline Pratt’s autobiography I Learn From Children continues to be used as a guide to progressive education worldwide. More about the book, along with links to purchase the new hardcover edition and download the free audiobook can be found here.
