    I have had two children go through Holy Cross' preschool program. We are now sending them here for kindergarten and beyond. I have been so incredibly impressed with this school. Everyone knows our family on a first name basis including every teacher and administrator. Every student is given individualized attention and every teacher genuinely cares. If you are considering sending your children here I would wholeheartedly recommend it!

    Even though we are not members of this church my daughter attends the preschool program and she loves it. I like that there is an emphasis on Christian teachings but they also offer plenty of play time and learning time. The teachers principal and staff are wonderful. I would definitely recommend this preschool to others.

    My child struggled with speech and we were recommended this school by his speech therapist. It indeed proved to be a warm and loving environment that helped foster his confidence. We were so thrilled with this school we sent all three of our children there! It's wonderful!

    I am a parent of two children who have attended Holy Cross Lutherin for preschool. My husband and I have been 100% satisfied in every way possible. In fact our experiece with this school has been and still is so positive I can only urge more parents consider sending their children there. It's definitely worth your time to stop by and get to know them. It is a christian based preschool with a very nurturing staff. The academic emphasis is right on target for each class while still promoting a healthy social and religious interface. It's a wonderful school and I'm so glad my kids have been given a loving start in their lives. I honestly can't say enough kind words to express my personal gratitude for the personal attention they have given our family for the past 4 years. No doubt you will also have a good experience here.
