Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

From the Director:

At Crossroads Christian Preschool, we believe that a quality preschool program is developmentally appropriate, meaning we place equal emphasis on academic, social and emotional development. Along with academics, Crossroads Christian Preschool believes positive social skills and age-appropriate emotional development are key factors in a child's readiness for their years of formal education.

From the Director:

The administrators and teachers at CCP (Crossroads Christian Preschool) share the philosophy that regardless of the number of hours the child spends in the program, the staff cannot replace the role of a parent in a child's life. Open communication between parent and teacher ensures that the school environment is consistent with the home environment in practices and beliefs. Early childhood is a time of rapid growth, especially in the area of social and emotional development, and therefore a strong partnership between parents and educators with shared beliefs and goals is crucial. The curriculum used at CCP provides opportunities to develop academic as well as social and emotional skills. Children are ever-changing individuals with a natural curiosity about the world around them. Exposing them to a high-quality preschool program that offers activities and opportunities to practice and build upon the skills they have already acquired lays a foundation for their more formal schooling years. CCP continually evaluates the curriculum used to ensure that it is meeting the needs of the students, as well as the current educational expectations, making efforts to incorporate any needed changes each year.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Crossroads Christian Preschool is a ministry providing a service to families in the Corona/Norco community, designed to create an environment of love and trust where children can grow emotionally, intellectually, socially, physically, and spiritually. We are, therefore, concerned with the whole child rather than any one aspect of his/her later experiences.
The early years of a child�s life are the most important to his development. In these years he develops a concept of himself, God, and others. This concept creates a pattern of feelings and behaving which underlies all his/her later experiences.
Crossroads Christian Preschool is a learning place. It is a place to experience oneself in relationship to God, to others, and to the environment through planned, guided activities. The Preschool is a place of caring, a place where the individual is accepted and valued as a unique creation of God. It is a place of wonder that provides the opportunity to question, to explore, to succeed, to celebrate in God�s world.
The learning environment is planned to allow freedom to be creative. However, limits will be set to help the child learn about safety, and develop a respect for property and the rights of others.
It is the desire of the Preschool to be an extension of the home. The Preschool is designed to reinforce the values and character building begun in the home. For this reason, a strong working relationship between the home and the Preschool is encouraged. "
