Young children develop attitudes about learning based on their earliest experiences in school. With this in mind, Crenshaw offers a nurturing, safe environment and a distinct, sequenced program specifically designed to meet the needs of its Lower School students.
Our developmentally appropriate curriculum inspires children to love learning by instilling positive attitudes and motivation, teaching strong basic learning skills, introducing a wide variety of disciplines, and fostering early social skills.


From the age of five, Crenshaw guides each child towards self-confidence and independence in a supportive and challenging environment. Your truly educated child of the new millennium will move beyond knowledge and skills to cultivate priceless habits of mind. Habits of mind include one’s desire to craft provocative questions born out of curiosity, to reflect on the nature of one’s own thinking, to synthesize old concepts into new ones, and to weave together diverse perspectives into one coherent idea. These habits of mind support lifelong learning; learning that transforms our understanding of the world.
