Welcome to the Preschool / Extended Day Care of Holy Cross. Holy Cross is a school where many new things are learned, friends are made, and families grow together in Christ. We hope that your experience here with us is a great beginning for your child’s future education.
Our preschool program offers three-hour sessions enhancing your child’s time spent learning. Our goal is to develop each child’s God-given talent and potential to the fullest. Our lessons teach children how to become responsible Christian adults in our community. We nurture and encourage spiritual, academic, physical, emotional, and social growth.
In short we offer exposure to cultural activities through:
various types of music
And…Holy Cross Preschool / Day Care parents know
that their child is learning and growing in a Christian environment where the child:
*learns that he/she is a special child of God
*learns about living and playing among others
*learns about Jesus Christ, his/her Savior and friend
We are proud of our Preschool for being awarded this very impressive Certificate of Appreciation from the State for maintaining KDHE Regulations 3 years consecutively. We are blessed to have staff make safety and health a priority in our school.
