Policies and Procedures
At Camp Olympia Country Day School our goal is to give your children a well- balanced program. We recognize that children develop differently and we appreciate each child's unique characteristics and interests. Through our wide variety of daily activities, we work to promote physical, cognitive, social, and emotional growth. We are very fortunate to have such a great environment! Remember that we are here to work with your children and all of us truly enjoy our work, otherwise we wouldn't survive one day!
Please bear in mind that it takes some children longer than others to adjust to a new situation. The best thing that a parent can do is to work with the teachers, and to give the child sufficient time to make friends and to adapt to a new school setting. We look forward to a rewarding relationship with you and your child.
