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 looking for information on classroom learning or school events, or a prospective family interested in discovering more about our constructivist curriculum, our safe and expansive campus (complete with farm and organic garden), and our diverse and inclusive community, I 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 and alumni (now 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 graduation 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--our graduates get into the high schools they want and thrive once 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. We expect great things of them in the future, because we know that passionate citizens change the world.
