“Through independent work and play, the RDS  environment fosters a personal sense of purpose."

Our Motto

Our School Motto is "Quisque Infans Singularis Est" which means "each child is unique". We encourage self-respect and pride in one's efforts in a small, integrated environment with personalized learning. 

Meaningful Learning For Life

Establishing and promoting each student's abilities and interests is the fundamental goal of RDS. Following this principle helps us bring our students to the understanding that they are important members of a community where each person's participation and efforts are encouraged and valued.


Our History

The Rosedale Day School was established in September of 1995 with a staff of four and twenty-three students spanning JK to Grade 2. The founding philosophy, which remains today, is a focus towards excellence in teaching in the elementary grade levels. Students develop an environment of awareness of community and compassion for others cooperative endeavours and project based learning. Communication between family and school is an integral part of the operation of RDS.

Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, RDS enhances and enriches student programming by utilizing world-class institutions including the University of Toronto, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Royal Ontario Museum. Our design-based and child-led learning strategies offer a supportive, nurturing environment that fosters student engagement and authentic learning.
