Description: CDSA is centrally located just east of David & Randol Mill intersection across from CATS Theater. The Montessori program has a strong science focus and is based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, which fosters a love of learning, respect or others, personal responsibility and inner discipline. The Montessori program is designed to develop culturally literate children and to foster a meaningful degree of independence, which sets a lifetime of good work habits and sense of responsibility.
     
The Details:  



 

Teaching philosophy: Montessori - Our mission is to educate the whole child; thus we endeavor to nurture every heart and challenge, every mind through the experiences of meaningful inquiry.
