CDS provides all classroom materials such as markers, pencils, etc.

We do ask that all children enrolled in the 3s, 4s, and K programs bring a pair of rain boots that can be left at school.

Children enrolled in the 3s, 4s, and K programs are also asked to bring a water bottle to school daily. Children enrolled in full-day and 5-hour programs will bring their lunch to school daily. An insulated lunch/bento box is recommended and should be labeled. Only children enrolled in the 5-Hour and full-day programs will bring a backpack to and from school.
