Visiting CDS

Only by visiting CDS will you really be able to sense the school’s energy and enthusiasm. For help figuring out how to make the most of a school visit, see what is recommended by the California Association of Independent Schools and the National Association of Independent Schools.

School Tours for Fall 2020 Admission

Joining a morning tour is a great way to get an overview of CDS while school is in session. Parent tour guides will show you around and answer your questions on everything from school life to farming at CDS. Tours are for parents/guardians only (no children). We apologize but, due to limited tour dates, tours are available only for parents/guardians of children who are age-eligible for enrollment in fall of 2020.

Children's Day School uses Ravenna-Hub for all steps of our admission process, including tour and open house registration. Complete an inquiry form here and register for a tour and/or open house. If you need assistance or have any questions, please contact Diane Larrabee, Director of Enrollment Management, at (415) 861-5432 x322 or Kristina Berman, Assistant Director of Enrollment Management, at (415) 861-5432 x337.
