Philosophy and Purpose


We believe that every child is a special creation of God, a blessing to his/her family, the world and to God. We see Christian education as the means by which children become aware of their place in God's creation, the blessings they receive as a child of God and the Christian responsibility that goes with being a member of God's kingdom. As is stated in Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart from it." At Holy Cross we strive to meet all children's intellectual, physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs in a warm, supportive, loving environment.

Holy Cross Preschool, Kindergarten and Child Care is a mission outreach of Holy Cross Lutheran Church and is supervised by a School Board which reports directly to the Holy Cross Board of Directors. The Administrator oversees daily operations.

If you do not have a church home, Holy Cross would be delighted to have your family worship with us and would welcome you warmly as a member of our family of faith. Our worship services begin at 8:00 (traditional service), 8:45 (blended service) and 11:00 (contemporary service). Sunday School for all ages begins at 10:00. Many of our school staff are members of the congregation and many of our children attend Holy Cross as well. We are sure you would feel right at home and would be warmly welcomed.
