      What Parents Say
      Why TCS is our #1 Choice
      As a parent and clinical psychologist, I chose The Children’s School for my children because of the unique academic and socio-emotional curriculum it provides to children of all ages. The educational philosophy of TCS is holistic, in that it fosters child development in multiple domains: academic/cognitive, social, emotional, and physical.

      It Was the Process
      I just got back from an amazing math presentation by a First Grade teacher, a Kindergarten teacher, and a Third Grade teacher this morning - they are in the second year of a three year math training program called CGI. For those of you who couldn't make it, I was so blown away that I feel compelled to share how the presentation helped me remember what I love about The Children's School.
