Sharon Stewart founded The Rosedale Day School in September of 1995.
The school comprised of four staff members and a total of twenty three students. There were two classes: Senior Kindergarten and Grade One.
RDS was conceived in order to provide Toronto's independent school system with an educational institution that had a two-part focus, first a “back to basics” curriculum, and second, an appreciation of the diversity of student development. Thus our “Little Red School House" was established on Bloor Street.
