Opportunities for Preschoolers at CEDARS
With a curriculum based on kindergarten-readiness, CEDARS (www.cedarskids.org) offers quality care for children ages six weeks through six years at two Early Childhood Development Centers. For parents working long hours trying to make ends meet, finding high quality childcare can be a struggle. Because CEDARS serves neighborhoods that have few options, this type of community-supported access to quality care is vital.
Recently, CEDARS Northbridge Early Childhood Development Center, located on North 27th Street, underwent a lush transformation to update a key learning space. The new outdoor classroom gives the children opportunities to explore nature while learning about the world around them. Spending more time in nature can facilitate better social and physical development, improve fitness, motor-skills and well-being, supports creativity and imaginative play, inspires collaboration and reduces violence and bullying.
In nationally accredited learning environments, CEDARS gives children their best start. To support each child’s learning, teachers prepare each day by using research-based creative curriculum. Individualized attention to the child’s development and learning give them an advantage when it is time for them to go on to kindergarten. Both centers are currently enrolling, with immediate openings for preschoolers at the Northbridge location.
