Cedarwood Preparatory School and College provides an academic education of high standard which integrates the National Curriculum from Grade 1 to Grade 12, with individualised remedial and therapeutic support in order to remove your child’s learning barriers as quickly and thoroughly as possible. 

Cedarwood School’s creativity programme utilises the arts, music, technology and creative visualisation.  This encourage the development of your child’s imagination and lateral, out-of-the-box things, as well as enhancing personal strengths and artistic talents.  Areas of strength are identified and emphasized early on.  The environment provides an atmosphere of calm understanding and fair discipline, where pupils are encouraged to reason and problem-solve using a variety of teaching methods and learning strategies.

Through the School Based Support Team, Cedarwood School offers additional academic support, emotional support, psycho-educational assessments, group speech, occupational and physiotherapy.

Private therapists are on-site offering individual speech and language therapy, individual occupational therapy, individual physiotherapy.  Specific assessments outside of the assessment offering will be charged at a nominal fee.

Because we know that many of our children lack social interaction skills and self-confidence, Cedarwood School have developed a unique emotional intelligence module which guides and supports your child emotionally, socially and spiritually.  Weekly class sessions with our head psychologists teach children how to build interpersonal relationships effectively, to work cooperatively with one another with mutual respect to grow self-awareness and self-confidence, and to develop positive attitudes and ethical human values.

On-going wrap-around meetings are held with the Headmaster, Heads of Department, teachers, therapists and parents to set objectives and to evaluate progress in order to meet your child’s individual needs.  Termly reports and annual scholastic assessments assist with this process.
