Welcome to The Child Day Schools – Lafayette

Dear Families,

Due to the new order (as of March 31, 2020) from the Health Officers of Contra Costa and Alameda Counties, for all individuals to continue to shelter at their place of residence, we have made the difficult decision to continue to close our schools as the "shelter in place" order has been extended. 

This Order is necessary to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We will update this notice with any new information and orders from Contra Costa and Alameda Counties Health Officers.

Please keep safe and healthy and we will meet together soon. Please contact the individual school for any enrollment questions (see links at top of page for locations). (Revised April 6, 2020)

“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.”
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.
