Crestwood Hills Preschool is located on an acre of land in the middle of Crestwood Hills Park in Brentwood. The historical A. Quincy Jones inspired building was built by the Crestwood Hills Homeowners Association for the neighborhood families in 1953. Surrounding the school building are three large 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.
At Crestwood Hills Preschool we focus on Social and Emotional learning. We are a play based school: we strongly believe children learn and grow through free play. We are a developmental program: we believe that children learn at different rates, stages and ages. We are child centered, our curriculum is driven by the children's interest. We honor the uniqueness and diversity of each of our students and seek ways to enhance learning based on individual learning styles and interests. Parents are partners with us in their child's eduction. The cooperative piece is essential to us and a focal point of our school.
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.
