Country Kids SchoolHouse

Caring for the children of Bedford Village and surrounding communities since 1996.

“Making a positive difference in your child’s education.”


A Unique, Personalized Approach

Established in 1996 by Larry and Ester Aguzzi, Country Kids Schoolhouse is an independently owned and operated childcare program located in the heart of Northern Westchester. As parents of four children and former restaurant owners, the Aguzzis have created a warm, home-like atmosphere that offers a nurturing environment supportive of children’s emotional and educational development. Small by design, the low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that your child always receives the personal attention needed to prepare for a successful transition to kindergarten.


Responsible, Trustworthy and Experienced Teachers


Children do best when they feel secure in their surroundings and are properly cared for by responsible adults, including teachers. Country Kids Schoolhouse children flourish in a safe, loving environment that facilitates learning and enrichment. Our dedicated teachers have been carefully selected for their ability to create positive, trusting bonds with young children, and have been a part of our care-center family for many years. Country Kids Schoolhouse is fully licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, and is an active member of the Child Care Council of Westchester and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). By providing children with a secure setting for learning and development, we also provide parents with much-needed peace of mind.


Happy Kids Learn More

Larry and Ester embrace the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on experiences that are both engaging and fun. As a result, Country Kids Schoolhouse’s innovative, theme-based curriculum focuses on school readiness, with lessons in science, math, art, language and social skills. Other special activities such as our Kids Chef program – highlighted by Larry’s great home cooking – give your child the opportunity to be involved in planning and preparing their lunch and snack.
