Welcome Parents!

Welcome parents of The Country Day School. We are excited about the upcoming school year and hope to see all of you out at one of our great events and activities planned to help you feel fully engaged with the CDS community.
There are so many ways to get involved! From Grade Parent coffee mornings, open houses and parent socials to mentoring and ad hoc committees for various Parent Association initiatives, there are many wonderful and meaningful ways for you to participate and be involved in the life of the school.
Many of our events are made possible due to the hard work of parent volunteers, so we encourage you to please consider volunteering. Any level of involvement is noticed and appreciated. We can tailor our volunteer opportunities to your availability and can guarantee it will be a fun experience that will help connect you to your child’s school and our community.
Please browse the Parent Association and Volunteering pages for more information. Getting involved is easy - just contact Tracey Scott or email
Thank you to everyone who has helped and participated in our events and services in the past.  We hope you will consider lending a hand again this year!

Chef's Recipes



The Country Day School wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. Our nearest Indigenous Nations are now the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Chippewas of Georgina Island. The Dish with One Spoon Wampum covenant is often cited as an example of the shared responsibility for caring for these lands among the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples who would call these their traditional territories. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection to this land can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for the land and waters for future generations.
