Our infant program is designed to enlighten young minds using a stimulating and personalized curriculum!
Our infant program starts enrolling our littlest learners at approximately 6 weeks to 3 months old. Once our youngest learners are able to walk steadily, then our center directors will reach out to families with proposals of transitioning into the toddler program. While age is certainly a consideration for moving up, however we also consider each child's ability to provide an optimal learning environment.
Sign language interpretation and communication, music class and Mandarin class begin in our infant program and is continued throughout your child's experience at Cresthill Academy.
Our toddler program generally begins around 19 months of age although toddler class enrollment varies based the individual child's needs and abilities.
Some highlights include the transition of your toddler into sleeping on a cot rather than in a crib and help them adjust to a new daily routine!
Additionally, our toddler class will eat all meals and nap in unison; a structured learning environment is at the top of our list at Cresthill Academy.
Toddler Two's Program
Our 2-year-old classrooms are where the fun really begins!
Uniforms begin to be required Monday-Thursday each week to create a limited distraction learning environment. Letter, number and shape recognition is mastered before they enter preschool.
Manners and etiquette are extremely important to us at Cresthill Academy; after all we are molding our future leaders! We review manners as a daily focus to teach the importance of saying please and thank you while learning to push in our chairs, use a napkin and wash our hands often. Potty training will begin as our expert caregivers utilize positive guidance techniques and recognition to achieve such an important skill.
Our preschool program opens up to our 3+ and potty-trained students. We begin a more complex curriculum that includes but is not limited to social studies, science, phonics, math, manners and writing.
Our goal at Cresthill Academy is to send our graduates to Kindergarten already reading!
Gardening will be a subject taught throughout the year as we plant our own garden of veggies and herbs and take advantage of our 5 senses to truly explore!
Through out the academic year and summer camp, Cresthill Academy partners with local vendors to provide enrichment classes such as dance, soccer, sports and more!
Enrichment opportunities vary and subject to change based on location and time of the year.
