Our Purpose

CrossWays PreSchool is planned with the young child in mind. During the preschool years, children need many hands-on experiences designed to fulfill their developmental needs. Through such experiences, young children can begin to construct a sense of order of the world.  In addition, our staff carefully guides socialization skills and healthy self-concepts as children interact with one another in play. Our purpose is to acquaint  children with a world that lies beyond home, and to provide a broad base for their learning experiences and social relationships. Our goal is to provide a positive preschool experience to enable young children to become capable, confident learners in preparation for kindergarten.

Our goal is to help each child:

    • develop self-identity as a person of worth and competence.
    • recognize reasonable limits and grow toward self-discipline and increased independence.
    • work and play effectively with other children and value the rights of others.
    • to be curious – that is, to wonder and seek answers to questions.
  • sharpen and widen language skills, both listening and speaking.
  • strengthen physical skills by using large and small muscles.
  • develop foundational skills for future learning.
  • form a positive connection with nature.


Most important is our desire to provide each child with a safe and positive preschool experience.
