We are fortunate to have 1.5 acres of land located in the middle of Crestwood Hills Park in Brentwood with three large outdoor play areas. Our school environment feels like a beautiful oasis in the middle of Los Angeles, far from cars, traffic and urban life. Children at Crestwood are amongst nature and it is a huge part of our daily program. We often spot deer on our hiking trail, experience the joy of harvesting fruits and vegetables from our school gardens, or watch a bird feeding its babies in one of our Sycamore trees. Our school is for families who enjoy nature and the outdoors. Our classroom is in the middle of our beautiful outdoor area and is a historical building built in 1953 inspired by A. Quincy Jones architecture like so many of the homes in the Crestwood Hills neighborhood.
At Crestwood our main goal is Social and Emotional skill building. We are a play based and strongly believe children learn and grow through free play. We believe children learn at different rates and stages and thus we are developmental program. We honor the uniqueness and diversity of each of our students and seek ways to enhance learning based on individual learning styles and interests. We are child centered. the curriculum and learning opportunities come from the children. When the curriculum is driven by the children's interest they are more likely to learn. And lastly, we are a parent participation preschool. Parents are partners with us in their child's eduction.
Crestwood Hills Preschool embodies a cooperative and inclusive community where parents are an integral part of their child’s early education. Whether assisting teachers in the classroom, sharing their talents and interests with the children, or serving on the Parent Board, our dedicated families develop meaningful connections and are central to the success of our preschool.
Crestwood Hills Preschool values diversity in its many forms and encourages families of every race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, language, countries of origin and abilities to apply. Our diversity and inclusion policies apply to prospective students, families and staff.
