At Cedars, we’ve always been visionaries at heart. So we recognise that to successfully prepare our students for the future, it has to involve implicational thinking. And that’s why we’ve thought ahead, by taking a specialised approach to early learning, so we can give your child the earliest advantage possible.

Providing more than a secure environment for the intellectual, physical and spiritual development of children, we’ve also ensured that as part of our regular curriculum, it includes professional speech, occupational therapy and psychology specialists.

At Cedars, we do it for one reason.

To give all of our students, the strongest start to their education, by building core competencies that are critical to their development through language, communication, and fine motor skills. They’re intentional, foundational skills that we know will confidently take them forward in life.

And as we do, it results in giving little lives, a very big advantage for their years ahead.
