Engaged Community Members ​

At Children’s Day School, community based learning is education in action, combining experiential learning, social justice education and community service. Guided by teachers, community members and Katina Papson Rigby, our Community Based Learning Coordinator, CDS students address real community needs–at school, in our local community and through international collaboration.

Students are involved in the process of planning and executing projects that are carefully tied to curricula, and all projects are developmentally appropriate for the age groups involved.
