Statement of Philosophy and Purpose
Our education philosophy is based on the belief that early Christian education provides an essential part of the development and growth of young children. Therefore, it is our purpose to honor God by providing quality care in a loving and safe environment where children can develop spiritually as they grow emotionally, physically, socially and cognitively.
Admission Policies and Procedures
To enroll at Cedar Crest Day Care Center, an interested parent/guardian should contact the Center to discuss the philosophy, policies, and procedures of the Center. The parent/guardian will be given a tour of the Center and discuss any issues with the Director. At this time, the parent/guardian will receive a copy of this handbook and all required enrollment forms. The enrollment forms must be completed and returned before an enrollment date can be set for your child. The Center does not discriminate in its enrollment based on race, religion, sex, disability, or ethnicity.
Our curriculum is individualized according to your child’s age and classroom placement. Our curriculum is designed to take an active approach to learning through the use of Montessori methods combined with developmentally appropriate learning experiences that have proven very successful in enabling our children to not only be the best educated but also be the best prepared for the school system.
Each member of our staff is qualified and competent to care for your child, according to your child’s needs. All staff members must pass a Child Care Criminal Background Check, complete orientation training and annual continuing education training. Members of our staff are also trained in pediatric CPR, general first aid, and medication administration.
