Head's Welcome

Welcome to Chatham Day School, and thank you for visiting our webpage!

Within these pages you will see words like ‘joyful’, ‘kindness’, ‘compassion’, ‘community’ and ‘empathy’.  CDS leads with these words front and center, and combined with our small classes, skilled teachers and innovative curriculum, we have fostered an environment that allows students to take risks and to more fully access all of their burgeoning interests. It allows students to be challenged and to challenge themselves, and it is a place where hands are happily and eagerly raised in every class and where bravery is rewarded.

However, the pages on a website can never be a substitute for seeing a school in action. Please, book a tour and come see the interactions of our students, faculty, administration and parents. It is only then the words above can fully leap to life.  I’m sure you will see, as I have, that this is a truly special place.

We look forward to meeting you, and to helping your own child thrive in their own fashion.
