Welcome

From the CDS Admission Office

Welcome to the Children’s Day School admission pages! We appreciate your interest in our school.

Today’s curious and engaged student is tomorrow’s passionate and informed world citizen. Those who meet and know Children’s Day School students consistently see uniquely enthusiastic, competent and academically skilled learners who are collaborative, responsible and self-confident.

To many parents, the task of finding the right school for their child can be daunting. At CDS, we want our admission process to be clear and we want our communications with prospective families to be welcoming, helpful and responsive. We adhere to the Principles of Good Practice in Admissions of the National Association of Independent Schools and of the Bay Area Directors of Admission.

We seek students and families who are a great fit with the CDS educational philosophy and its involved, diverse and inclusive community. The Admission Office is here as a resource for prospective families, so please feel free to contact me at (415) 861-5432 x322, or Amanda Richard, Associate Director of Admission, at (415) 861-5432 x337. Also, please visit the website developed by the Directors of Admission at Independent Schools of the Bay Area for more information about admission to Bay Area independent schools.

We look forward to meeting you.

Diane Larrabee
Director of Admission
