Thank you for your interest in our Early Childhood Program at Cedar Hill Prep School. It is during the first years of life that children form attitudes about themselves, others, learning and the environment around them. These attitudes last a lifetime so we work very hard to find ways to help children develop positive ones.
Our core early childhood belief is that children learn best through play and play is the legitimate and genuine work of young children. When children are engaged in purposeful play, they are discovering, creating, improvising and expanding their learning. Our programs are structured so that children are active participants in their own development and learning. We observe and respond to our children and help support their current skills and help scaffold them to reach the next milestone in their developmental journey.
Cedar Hill Prep recognizes the importance of including cultural differences in all aspects of learning. We approach our teaching strategies with the cultural differences within our school.
To enhance our Early Childhood Education curriculum, the children attend classes taught by specialists.
Grade 4 Student Pranavi at the United Nations! Peace Day celebrations took place at the United Nations Headquarters on Friday, September 20th. CHP 4th grader, Pranavi Sivakumar, had an opportunity to participate in this International Day of Peace Student Observance. This memorable experience for Pranavi is best described in her own words: “We waited in line for almost three hours. When we finally were able to sit down inside the U.N., we listened to many speeches about climate change. I also met my dance teacher there. She performed very nicely. I was paying close attention. I was the most excited person in my life!”
The Multiple Advantages of a Multilingual CurriculumThere have been a number of studies in recent years that suggest people who speak more than one language are in fact more intelligent. An article written by the New York Times highlights that learning multiple languages could improve cognitive skills beyond those related to language, which is a considerably different viewpoint than previously thought.
