We are fortunate to be located in a spacious, natural environment, in the middle of Crestwood Hills Park, where children might spot a 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. This idyllic setting is nestled --to the surprise of many-- in the beautiful hills of Kenter Canyon within the historical neighborhood of Crestwood Hills in Brentwood.
Our educational philosophy is the heart of our school and supports the guiding principles of our teaching. We are a developmental, play-based, child-centered, and cooperative preschool. We focus on social and emotional learning and we believe all children learn, change and grow at different rates and stages. We honor the uniqueness and diversity of each of our students and seek ways to enhance learning based on individual learning styles and interests.
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.
