Learning at Crestwell School is an adventure. Our dynamic curriculum encourages children at each stage of their educational, emotional, and social development to discover their own innate talents and interests.

WHAT YOUR CHILD CAN EXPECT AT CRESTWELL SCHOOL

Preschool and Kindergarten is such an exciting time for young minds to expand.  At Crestwell School, we focus on developing the whole child through both independent and teacher directed activities.  Our academic program is a phonics-based program utilizing the Zoo Phonics curriculum.  In addition, our students will work on pre-writing and pre-math skills, in conjunction with phonics and pre-reading. As children grow into our elementary program, they bring with them a strong foundation of learning, social skills, and emotional skills which involve friendships, problem-solving, and independence.  They are able to maintain a rigorous academic schedule and continue to enjoy special subjects like art, music, physical education, technology, and foreign language. 

All subjects are taught individually, as a large group, and in smaller groups.  The playground is a larger space, which allows students to continue to develop independence, accountability, and respect for themselves, their fellow students and to the elementary staff.  In other words, to live by the school motto:  “Caring. Creative. Community.” Crestwell Schools Kindergarten Program provides children with a strong foundation that not only builds on Junior and Intermediate Kindergarten program, but also helps prepare the child for a successful Elementary school experience.

Our challenging, developmentally calibrated curriculum ensures mastery in fundamental subject areas, while collaborative projects and individual attention spark your child’s enthusiasm and curiosity.

CHARACTER VALUES

We uphold character values as a vital element of every child’s education. When character development is a natural and indispensable part of your child’s early learning, they grow as insightful leaders and effective problem solvers.
