Our son attended Cedar Crest Kirkland campus from preschool to kindergarten at which point we decided to stay with Cedar Crest through their phenomenal elementary program at Bellwood campus. I can't say enough how wonderful the school is; the teachers all of which have advance degrees display so much passion for growing our children to be critical thinkers, academically outstanding performers and well rounded world citizen; the director and all of the staff know each kiddo by name and their parents; tuition which covers all of the needs - books, lunches, tours, etc - you pay once and you are done... Our class was tested in 2nd grade through ITBS and landed 98% in the country without "sweat"...after so many years I still don't know how this happens, all of the kids are very bright yet they are still kids; though we do have homework, kids are not "swimming in the homework", they are taught responsibility and allowed to have time and freedom to simply be kids. Parents are informed with weekly and if needed daily emails on the progress of the class, key learnings, events, etc. Technology and class equipment is the latest; art, science labs, PE, music, drama all are superb.

My kids attended this school. Management is rude and all they care about is the tuition and not what is important for the kids. They don't care one bit about what each kid needs. High turnover for staff as well. They pay less and don't take any feedback from staff or parents. You pay the big bucks and do exactly what they want. No voices heard. you just do what they say!!! regret the decision to send my kids here. Management is unethical and don't value anything other than the check.

Our son attended pre-k at CCA - Bellevue and we have nothing but fantastic things to say about the school, management and teachers. In less than a year , we have seen phenomenal growth in our son's ability to read and write. His overall progression from a shy/quiet kid to a confident/outgoing one was a delight. If you are looking for an academically oriented school in a fun/nurturing environment , this is a great choice. Overall we STRONGLY recommend CCA - Bellevue.

Anyone who knows anything about early childhood education knows that in a preschool environment, sitting at a table doing "paperwork" is detrimental to a child's acquisition of language and literacy skills. Furthermore, children being pushed to learn above their level of comprehension can be demotivated and left behind. The building blocks are established for a reason. I'm not sure Cedar Crest has any awareness of the value of education more than the substantial paychecks the owners earn as a result of the minimal staff pay. Cedar Crest built their model on the "paperwork" they use to teach their students and starting children off at "higher levels" for advanced academic achievement. If you choose to admit your child to this institution, be sure there may be repercussions.
