What sets Cedar Crest’s preschool program apart from other local programs?

Our preschool students benefit greatly from CCECC’s collaborative relationship parachutewith Cedar Crest Academy.  Each week, CCA’s ancillary teachers visit our preschool classrooms to provide specialized instruction in: Spanish, Chinese, music, art, and physical education.   Cedar Crest’s world language teachers are native speakers who offer cultural learning experiences in addition to foreign language instruction.  Preschoolers enjoy large group games, tumbling, and traditional sports activities lead by our physical education teacher in CCA’s full size gymnasium.  Our uniquely comprehensive preschool program is rich with meaningful learning opportunities to promote the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development of young children.

Cedar Crest has multiple preschool classrooms for students, 2.5-5 years old.  We are committed to providing an individualized and accelerated learning experience for each student.  Class placement is determined by several variables including age and social/emotional development.  This deliberate and thoughtful process ensures that each student receives the support and challenging opportunities required to learn at their highest potential.

  • Preschool classes are available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.–12 p.m. 
  • Ages 2.5
  • Childcare is available 7 a.m.–6:30 p.m.

Super Small

Cedar Crest is excited to bring this unique world language learning opportunity to Clarkston! Preschool age students will participate in a fully immersed multicultural environment led by native speaking teachers.

The benefits of bilingual education are numerous.  Early exposure to foreign language improves the brain’s executive function.  Research shows that bilingual children score higher on verbal standardized tests and perform better in math and logic skills than monolingual children.  Early childhood Spanish immersion provides a foundation for success in a globalized world by teaching new languages and cultures while fostering art, music, emergent reading, writing, math, science, movement and social skills.  Spanish Immersion classes are available on Wednesdays, 9 a.m.12 p.m. for the 2017-2018 school year!
