The Child Day Schools’ (TCDS) programs include the HighScope research based philosophy along with the Project Web curriculum. Our programs value and follow the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC’s) Accreditation Standards, including low teacher-child ratios. Our environments, similar to Montessori, promote children’s explorations. However, we also emphasize dramatic play, social interactions and creativity. Children engage in developmentally appropriate activities – promoting skills for kindergarten and activities to help them understand the world around them. With low teacher-child ratios, our nurturing and well-trained teachers support children throughout the day.
