Caedmon is a unique education.
Our program combines high academic standards, an emphasis on the arts, and a strong focus on social development.
We are deliberately small in size.
The average class size is 16-18 children with two teachers.
We are a a Modified Montessori school.
Our program develops a love for the process of learning by sustaining the natural motivation with which all children are born.
Caedmon is ethnically, racially, culturally, economically, and intellectually diverse.
Diversity is a cornerstone of our philosophy.
Caedmon is a community of enthusiastically involved families, offering a warm, congenial atmosphere and a very active Parents Auxiliary.
Caedmon provides a wide variety of learning opportunities to challenge our children in developmentally appropriate ways.
In a supportive and nurturing environment, our children experience success, assume responsibility, and feel comfortable taking risks.
We build self-esteem by teaching independence and by facilitating individual learning styles.
