Our brand new Gymnastics Pavilion is a success! Campers learn basic skills, coordination, body awareness, and balance from the professional staff of instructors from HotShots Gymnastics. From handstands on the horse to tumbles, back handsprings, and back walkovers on the spring floor, our campers love this new area. They even learn to balance, walk, and jump on the balance beam as well as perform pullovers on the parallel bars. Campers will be surprised at their own strength!

We are happy to announce that Bari, owner of the Dance Arts Centre in Port Washington, will return to run Crestwood's dance program again this summer. Bari, along with her other dance instructors, will work with our campers on flexibility, movement across the floor, as well as a variety of age appropriate dance styles. Older camp groups will learn individual dance routines set to current pop songs to perform at the camp talent show. Younger campers love Bari's dance program as well since they get to play dance related games like the "bean bag dance" along with the ever popular "freeze dance". This summer she may even have a surprise dance competition in store for our campers!

We're Expanding Our Science Program
Crestwood is excited to announce that we are enhancing our science and nature program by expanding our Science building.
Our Science and Nature teacher, Miss Christine is turning our Crestwood students into little scientists. Through the use of observation, exploration and hands on experience the children are exploring multiple aspects of the scientific world.
For our Toddler children, Miss Christine is allowing them to get comfortable interacting with her friendly animals, reptiles and insects.
For our Nursery children, Miss Christine is teaching them about experiments through the use of test tubes. The children used test tubes to mix colors with water, making orange, purple, yellow and green.
The Pre-K children all learned about the different bones in the body working with a replica skeleton. All the children made a scientific drawing of a skeleton and then added different types of macaroni to highlight the different bones in the body! This lesson was a stepping stone into their dissection of an owl pellet.
This expansion will also benefit our summer Nature program.

At this time, Crestwood is commencing our enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year. We are happy to announce that due to this year's increase in school enrollment and our expected increase next year, we will be able to freeze tuition rates for next school year for those who take advantage of our early bird discount. A 10% deposit is due by January 31, 2014 to lock in our early rate. Additional discounts for those who wish to pay in full by 1/13/14 and also for those who participate in our 2014 summer camp are also available. To view our enrollment form click here.
We know how important these early school age years are in preparing your children for their future. That is why we have been constantly adding to our already robust advanced programs, talented staff and varied curriculum. In addition to the smartboard, our new iPads have been a big success and help us teach and reinforce concepts in an engaging and interactive way. We have recently begun expanding our science building to offer more Science classes with even more exciting activities and experiments. We have also begun a new Balance Bikes program during Phys Ed with our students which should make learning to eventually ride a two-wheeler easier. These are only a few examples of our commitment to reinvest in our school and continue to be the innovators when it comes to pre-school education. We look forward to sharing many more new ideas and programs with you in the months ahead.
