Toddler and Preschool Foundation at
Chesterfield Day School
Serving students Age 18 Months to 5 Years
CDS's early childhood program is an academically challenging environment that promotes a love of learning and fosters concentration, initiative, respect, and independence. The Montessori philosophy is the foundation of our preschool programs beginning at 18 months in the Toddler class and continuing through Kindergarten and 1st Grade.
In addition to traditional Montessori materials, teachers strive to enhance their student's education experience by designing other activities that reinforce learning and support Montessori methodology. CDS also prepares students for education outside of a Montessori environment. From Kindergarten to 3rd Grade the CDS curriculum builds a bridge from Montessori to secondary school preparation, allowing students the opportunity to learn to navigate what life will be like in rigorous middle and high school environments while still experiencing a highly personalized approach to instruction similar to the early years in our program.
