Pre-K – 6th Grade

I am excited to start my first full year at CSDB in the PK-6th grade program.  This year our teams will be working on skills with children around play-based and problem-based learning.  Our teachers are committed to help your children develop academically and improve their critical thinking skills.  We will create exciting and engaging thematic based learning opportunities and share our presentations with you and your family.
