Preschool (ages 2.5–4 years old)

Children who are at least 2.5 years old (30 months) by September 6, 2022, are eligible to attend preschool at Cedar Crest Early Childhood Center for the 2022-2023 school year. CCECC offers multiple preschool classrooms to best support the developmental, social-emotional, and academic needs of students 2.5-4 years old.

Our mission is to instill a love of learning in our youngest preschool students as they become acclimated to the school routine. Activities in this classroom are designed to cultivate joyful, meaningful relationships with peers and teachers! Bathroom independence is not required for participation in our 2.5-3 year old preschool classroom.

Seasoned preschool students thrive in stimulating learning environments. Our 3-4 year old preschool classrooms provide additional challenge, experiential learning, and playful interactions with peers and educators to support the rapidly developing skills and curiosities of our older preschool students.
