Cresthill Academy utilizes relevant and developmentally appropriate technology to optimize our students' education. Tadpoles smart app is used to maximize communication and connection between family, child and school.


Furthermore, our school features a cutting-edge coded entry system, meticulously designed to grant access only to individuals affiliated with our enrolled students. To provide added peace of mind, we have strategically placed video cameras throughout our premises. The director’s office maintains continuous live feeds from every classroom and play space without distracting parents at work or home. In light of the importance of safeguarding our students' privacy, we have opted to keep our video system on a closed circuit. This decision serves as an additional layer of protection against potential threats, ensuring that the privacy and safety of every child at Cresthill Academy is preserved.


As part of our commitment to security, we do not allow live Internet feeds to external computers, preventing any unauthorized sharing of images or potential privacy breaches thereby reducing risks associated with compromised privacy, unauthorized sharing of children's images, or potential breaches by hackers.
