What's Included

Open to K-5th grade students, 4th and 5th graders can enroll as Counselors in Training (CIT)'s. Children enjoy innovative activities based on their won personal interests in areas such as free play, cooking, sports, science, creative environment, water play, and board games. Although each child is part of a smaller peer group of similar ages, he or she is also a member of a larger group. This gives each child a unique kind of social and learning experience. Children have fun, exciting days, but there is always time for relaxation, reflection, and individual pursuits. A typical day begins with music/dance, followed by a brief meeting. Twice a day children choose one or more activities in which to participate, including sports and games, arts and crafts, cooking projects, science projects, and playing outdoors. Mid-morning we break for stories. A leisurely lunch is followed by a second set of activities. The day ends with a snack and movie video, as well as a closing meeting at which children share highlights of their day with the group.

About This Organizer

For over 130 years the Ethical Culture Fieldston School has been committed to excellence in education as it seeks to develop the intellectual, artistic and moral potential of its students. ECFS serves approximately 1,700 students and 325 faculty and staff in our four divisions. Ethical Culture, Fieldston Lower, Fieldston Middle, and Fieldston upper. Ethical Culture is located in midtown Manhattan on Central Park West, in a six-story, turn-of-the-century school building; the other divisions share an 18-acre campus in the Riverdale Section of the Bronx.

Through an academic program that is demanding, rigorous, and through, we encrouage our students to challenge themselves in innovative ways, so they can reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit. We approach education in an interdisciplinary, experiential, and colaborative way, helping our students develop a lifelong passion for learning and understanding of its relevance beyond the classroom. As ethical learning provides the foundation of all that we do, we emphasize our students' moral development, and guide them towards service and social justice. The admirable successes of our graduates in a wide range of fields - from the arts to the sciences, from business to public service - and their contribution to society, attest to the promise of ECFS realized.
