Our Philosophy

Jesus made it very clear how important children were to his ministry. Holy Cross has accepted His challenge to bring up our children with Christ as the center of their lives. The philosophy of our preschool is to provide a Christ-centered atmosphere that allows children to grow in knowledge, understanding, skills, and character.

A few specific goals of our Preschool include:

• An understanding of the importance of one’s self-worth and self-value
• Self-expression through language skills
• Social skills through group interaction
• Independence and problem-solving skills.
