The Primary Day School

The Primary Day School in Bethesda, Maryland, is a school for boys and girls from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 2. We are the only school in the area that focuses exclusively on children in this unique age group, and we do so for a very important reason.These are the most crucial learning years in children’s lives, a time when they are bursting with potential, ready for quantum leaps of development. At Primary Day, everything we do focuses on helping young children flourish—as learners and as people—during this vitally important time of life.

The Primary Day School, a demonstration school for the Phonovisual Method, is a nondenominational, diverse, coeducational, independent school for children in Pre-Kindergarten through Second Grade. The school’s warm and supportive atmosphere encourages the development of students intellectually, morally, physically and emotionally, according to each child’s gifts and talents.

The Primary Day school is located at 7300 River Road, Bethesda, MD 20817.

Creative Summer: Creative Kids at Primary Day

Creative Summer is thrilled to work with our friends at The Primary Day school this summer during our potential renovation project! While the logistics will be different, the program will be the same Creative Summer quality you have come to expect – from our long-time Creative Kids staff to the campers’ daily programming. We could not ask for a better alternate location than The Primary Day School, which regularly serves children in Pre-K to second grade. And due to their proximity across the street, the Creative 6s and 7s will easily continue their swimming and tennis sessions on the Holton-Arms campus.
