What We Offer:

Children enrolled in Holy Cross Preschool & Kindergarten have the opportunity to grow and explore with us from age 2 through kindergarten.

We offer academic programs and exceptional year-round childcare for families looking for a loving, nurturing, and engaging environment for their children. We use the “Core Knowledge Preschool Program” & “Core Knowledge Kindergarten Program” designed to provide children with the solid academic foundation needed for successful learning in kindergarten and beyond.

What makes our school unique is the strong Biblical foundation children receive while at Holy Cross. Our goal is to nurture their faith by sharing God’s Word and emphasizing His love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness.

Our Programs:

Preschool Prep is intended to help children achieve mastery with autonomy skills including toilet training, communication, socialization, developing independence, movement and coordination, and early academic skills. This is a fun and exciting time for exploration! We believe children learn by interacting with the world around them. Children are not required to be fully potty trained and may begin as early as two years old.

Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten are designed to help children get ready for kindergarten. Children are provided with a variety of materials and experiences. Emphasis is on practicing skills in the following areas: language and literacy, mathematics, scientific reasoning, visual and performing arts, communication, social studies, time and spatial relationships, and movement and coordination.

Transitional Kindergarten (Jr. K) and Kindergarten are exceptional academic programs that adhere to state standards with the added benefit of a small class size of ten students taught by an experienced credentialed teacher! All curriculum choices support current core standards for kindergarten. Children develop confidence as they learn reasoning, communication, interpersonal, technology, and academic skills. Physical fitness and coordination are important components of the program as are music and art. Our children thrive in a loving Christian environment where the Gospel is shared and parents/guardians partner with our teacher in their children’s learning and development.

In addition to our academic programs we offer year-round childcare designed to enrich what children are learning at each stage of their development. While parents are happy that their children are safe and well cared for, children are happy to have fun exploring the world around them while spending time with friends.
