An excitement for learning and an enthusiasm for the school experience are fostered through the dynamic theme-based and activity-centered environment found at Cedar Crest Academy. Each child is given the opportunity to experience success while being guided through a well-balanced program of individual projects, small group activities, and large group interactions. We are committed to providing a fun-filled, rewarding program that meets each child’s intellectual, physical, social, creative, and emotional needs. Your child’s typical day will include individual attention, gentle guidance and instruction, developmentally appropriate activities, and exposure to reading, math, science, art, and music. To meet the needs of a 21st century learner, our curriculum has been designed with a problem-solving focus. This allows children to utilize knowledge from all subject content areas in order to fully explore the current curriculum theme.
Every classroom is themed, creating a more in-depth exploratory space. Each classroom’s theme is presented through special décor and furnishings, as well as specialized learning equipment appropriate to that particular classroom. Our four campuses includes but are not limited to the following classroom themes: Imagination and Drama; Language and Literacy; Music and Movement; Math and Manipulatives; Science and Sensory; Building and Construction; and Nature and Environments.
Each classroom serves as a Homeroom to one of our classes. Throughout the day each class will rotate from one discovery-based classroom to another. This gives children the opportunity to engage and explore a new environment while preventing the boredom from being stifled in one classroom. Your child’s teacher will rotate with the class from one classroom to another. This provides continuity and stability while the children are exposed to new stimulating environments.
