Program and Academics
Self-expression, poise and grace are developed through music, rhythmic interpretation and gymnastics. Music plays an important role in our students’ lives through our daily opening exercises and structured, age and ability appropriate music classes. Students are given opportunities to experiment and are encouraged to do so at school. Well-equipped outdoor and indoor play areas develop physical skills during active periods and provide opportunities to share experiences, develop social skills, and gain self-confidence.
Interest in reading, art, math, science and nature is stimulated through hands-on lessons and creative work. Knowledge is gained by daily opportunities for creative endeavors and experiments. Manipulative activities develop multiple skills. These serve as a basis for greater appreciation and understanding of reading, art, math, science and nature during the child’s life.
Introduction to foreign languages familiarizes the children with different cultures, music, simple words and phrases. Cedarcroft has a large preschool library. A love of literature through reading and listening at “Story Times” is encouraged. Working towards reading readiness and reading skills are important parts of our curriculum for all age groups.
Parents and family members are welcome to drop in for a short visit at any time. If you or a family member would like to stay for more than a quick five minute visit or would like to volunteer at the school, please contact the school office to make arrangements.
