About The Child Day Schools, Lafayette:

THE CHILD DAY SCHOOLS, LAFAYETTE is our first campus which we opened in 1976.  This special campus in the heart of Lafayette has been renovated several times over the years.  The spacious playgrounds were created with help of our parent’s club.  The dedicated staff has maintained the high quality of our programs year after year.  The programs include early preschool (for twos), preschool (for threes), pre-kindergarten (for fours) and our Kindergarten Program.  The Kindergarten program is in high demand with its unique curriculum including studies of composers, artists, paper-making, mammals and utilizing the McGraw Hill systematic phonics and reading program and Math Their Way.

Parent Testimonial / Review:

“My son has attended TCDS in Lafayette for 2 years.  I cannot say enough great things about this wonderful school.  He absolutely loves his friends and teachers and feels "at home" there.  The teachers are warm, patient and caring and truly seem to care about each child.  He has learned so much, both socially and academically and I know that he will be more than prepared when he attends Kindergarten in the fall.  I work full-time so he is at school all day, but it gives me peace of mind to know that he is being well taken care of, challenged, and also having a great fun time at school.  I truly cannot think of one negative thing to say about this school."
