We Are CDS

    • We Are CDS


Welcome to Children’s Day School, an independent co-educational school for students in preschool through eighth grade. Whether you are a current CDS family member looking for information on classroom learning or school events or a prospective family member interested in discovering more about our constructivist curriculum, our safe and expansive campus (complete with farm and organic garden), or our diverse and inclusive community, we invite you to spend some time exploring our website!

Each fall, CDS hosts an evening open house for prospective families, a highlight of which is a question-and-answer session with current CDS middle schoolers as well as CDS alumni who have moved on to become high school and college students. Those who hear these remarkable young people consistently describe them as self-aware, self-assured, intellectually curious and engaged. 

Nurturing these types of learners from preschool through eighth grade requires a deliberately constructed learning community where dedicated teachers and administrators partner with parents and guardians to foster each child’s intellectual, social, and emotional growth. We are proud of our rigorous academics that allows our graduates to get into the high schools they want and thrive once they are there, but we want much more. We are growing collaborators, team-builders, creative problem solvers, out-of-the-box thinkers, and unique individuals who have a strong sense of social justice, civic responsibility, and environmental stewardship. In the best sense of the words, we expect great things of our students, because we know that passionate citizens change the world!
Children's Day School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  Learn More
