The Children's School
In the Children’s School, students in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade learn in a language-rich environment intended to prepare them for the 21st century.
It’s not uncommon to see preschoolers exposed to French and Spanish, so that when they reach the higher grades, they will be familiar with the sounds, cadences and basic vocabulary of their chosen language. While technology is widely available throughout the campus, introducing it slowly to elementary school children is the belief of RCDS educators. In the third grade (and not before), students learn keyboarding skills and become acquainted with the positive aspects of the Internet through teachers’ use of class websites for assignments, homework and communication with parents. To maintain healthy bodies and minds, physical education is offered three times a week. Students get to avail of the school’s extraordinary food program, which offers a wide variety of organic and locally grown produce to satisfy their nutritional needs. Developing student’s social, emotional and ethical needs is paramount at The Children’s School, where educators continuously weave these ideas into the daily academic curriculum.
