Our mission is to preserve childhood, to create an authentic environment where children feel safe, loved, and respected for who they are.
Or goal is to surround children with understanding adults who will tend to the well-being and dignity of the children, and we will model the behavior we encourage in our children. We provide education which engages and nurtures the child physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually in a non-dogmatic way.
We seek to cultivate each student’s individual gifts, to encourage independent thinking and imagination, and to foster a life-long love of learning and wonder. Our curriculum strives to integrate academics, the arts, and practical studies.
Singing Cedars places our highest value on honoring the social, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of each child. Singing Cedars allows for individual variations in the pace of learning, based upon the expectation that a child will grasp a concept or achieve a skill when he or she is ready. Cooperation takes priority over competition. Social skills are explicitly taught. Singing Cedars seeks to actively engage the parent population in the education and development of their children in respectful partnership with our teachers. Singing Cedars is devoted to contributing to spiritual, social, and economic renewal. Singing Cedars, its parents, practitioners and administrators are free to work out of a clear recognition of and commitment to the development of the spiritual nature of the human being. Singing Cedars requires that parents restrict the influence of media via television, internet, and movies in order to nurture the natural curiosity, protect appropriate child development and stimulate creative play.
