My daugter is a young student at Cedar Crest. The staff here is incredible and truly care about my childs education and well-being. I am anxious for her to being learning world languages at a very young age. The student:parent ratio is small as well, so it gives my daughter a chance to have one on one time with her teacher. The owner and founder of the school is on site every day and knows each student and treats them as her own. It is a very special place.
