"As part of the outreach ministry of Cross Roads Presbyterian Church, the Preschool offers a high quality
week-day program for the children of Cross Roads, Monroeville, and surrounding communities. Committed
to Christian nurturing, our aim is to help children from infancy to five years of age develop emotionally,
socially, and cognitively and to provide similar support and encouragement to their families. We establish a
loving and caring atmosphere in which each child is respected as an individual . . . a unique gift of God.
Goals of Cross Roads Preschool
In an environment where teachers and caregivers are supportive, accepting, and encouraging adults, it is
our desire to:
-- provide experiences that will encourage each child to develop self esteem, trust, initiative, and
-- provide learning experiences that are appropriate to the developmental level of each child in
language arts, social studies, math, science, music, art, health, and safety.
-- provide educational and social experiences in a safe and stimulating physical environment with
appropriate supplies and equipment.
-- provide information concerning each child's development that will enable the school and the
family to plan for the changing needs of the child.
It is not our intention to teach religious subjects, but it must be understood that this will be a churchsponsored
Christian Preschool and, therefore, the teachers will be free to include in their programs Bible
stories, songs, activities, etc."
