Children's Day School recognizes that every child is born with unique gifts.
Our mission is to develop each student's genius by providing an inspiring environment where challenging academics are inseparable from social, artistic, and physical experiences, and where children of all backgrounds feel safe to be themselves, become avid learners, and strive to make a difference in the lives of others.
Our educational program encourages curiosity, exploration, cooperation, risk-taking and a love of learning.
It is integrated across academic disciplines and incorporates a project-based approach in which our students develop academic skills through inquiry and collaboration.
Our students develop a sense of caring for self, for others, for the community and for the world as they become creative thinkers, skilled mathematicians, accomplished artists, strong writers and rigorous researchers.
They graduate confident in their strengths, unafraid to struggle and prepared for the challenges and opportunities that await them.
