    "Our daughter has been thriving at this school for years so it's obviously a good fit for our family. A while back she attended after school leadership classes and I have to admit the CDS kids in attendance were much more inquisitive and articulate as well as very comfortable speaking in front of the class compared to the other kids who came from private schools considered elite in the city. I was so proud."

    "My child is in her 5th year at CDS and is now a 2nd grader. The school has been a fantastic fit for our family. We want our daughter to get a great education, but not in a bubble that doesn't represent the diverse community of San Francisco. CDS has been exactly that. Excellent education plus a strong community that cares deeply about social justice and a school that strives to develop confident, articulate, life long learners who care deeply about the lives of others. In the past 5 years I have seen the positive results of the staffs focus on improving academics, improving and enhancing facilities, all while focusing on a strong commitment to sliding scale. And the best part? My daughter loves going to school and learning each day."

    "Our child is in the 2nd year of preschool having transferred from another preschool. Comparing the two preschools, CDS is a significant step up. The sense of community and associated parental involvement is much stronger. The teachers' level of experience are off the charts. The most junior person in the classroom has a degree in early childhood development and 3 years of experience. The most experienced has been teaching at the school for over 15 years! It is NOT so common to find teachers who are highly experienced and trained and engaged and committed. We don't take it for granted. The preschool curriculum is a healthy balance of 1) play based, pick what you want to do 2) "must do" reading or pre-math exercises and 3) long-running projects that involve the whole classroom. This is rounded out by outdoor play time and weekly PE and music. The school does an annual fund but I haven't felt any big pressure to give big. The biggest part of the new building and the associated renovation is already paid for so I don't perceive the school is in any way overextended. Rather we feel lucky we'll get to take advantage of all of these new resources in future years!"

    "Great little school that made an unfortunate hire with current head that has changed the entire tone and feel of the community as CDS attempts to become an enclave for the wealthy. Teaching is wildly inconsistent (terrific in the PK and the upper grades, terrible in the lower grades) and despite years of aggressive fundraising, the facilities are subpar."

    "Our son has attended Children s Day School since preschool and is now in Kindergarten. We are thrilled with the academic program at this school and feel that the teachers at CDS have made our son a better person. Since starting Kindergarten, he has blossomed into a student who is eager to express new ideas about the concepts learned in class. At CDS, learning is made hands-on and thematic. I can tell how much my son benefits from being immersed in curriculum that reflects the concepts he is learning about. At the beginning of the year he was hesitant about letter sounds and names. He is now constantly trying to spell and sound out words. He has become more confident as he attempts to express himself in writing. We feel the same way about the math curriculum where he is involved in real-life problem solving as he continues to make sense of numbers and patterns. We wouldn t want him to learn any other way. We love this school!"
