Woodcrest Preschool Tarzana is a strong believer in empathy and compassion for others.  The school utilizes Sanford Harmony SEL program to provide lifelong skills that helps children acquire and apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, learn compassion, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions.


As your children grow up, they will often be faced with changing lessons, a different teacher, new work groups, new academic skills and tasks, fluid social group dynamics, new sporting or creative challenges – and so on.  At Woodcrest Preschool Tarzana, we work with your children to seek out information, help them understand that change is not bad, and guide them through behaviors, thoughts and emotions that lead to successful outcomes.


Even children as young as age two can begin the process of learning to care for their own bodies and being responsible.  At Woodcrest Preschool our students are capable of responsibilities for self-care and learn many age appropriate classroom tasks to practice these important skills.  At Woodcrest, our students LOVE being helpers and learning to do things on their own. Using practical life skills to encourage a young child’s desire for independence promotes healthy development (order, concentration, self-control, coordination, independence) and fosters a sense of high self-esteem.

Engaged in learning

One key way to engage students in learning is to ensure the material speaks to them.  Our curriculum is carefully designed to peak each child’s interests and fascinations, give children  choices to learn in a way that is comfortable and age appropriate, Group students to allow for collaboration and communication, and present curriculum and themes in multiple formats.  Woodcrest makes a concerted effort to engage students in their learning, the result you'll discover is children who are better able to maintain focus, better able to sustain behavior, and better able to grasp and retain the material.
