Our preschool program at Holy Cross Lutheran Academy is tailored for children who turn 3 by September 2nd and are fully toilet-trained. Using the Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence, our teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities in an engaging and supportive environment that meet the individual needs and learning styles of each child.
Children are encouraged to practice skills that will help prepare them for what comes next in pre-kindergarten and beyond. Our goal is to generate excitement for learning while fostering an attitude of belief in self for solving problems, thinking critically, completing new tasks, and communicating needs to peers as well as adults. Intellectual development and language skills are critical for preschoolers. For children who have already attended our school, we are able to build on the foundation established in our preschool prep program.
We use curriculum and assessments that follow the California content area and learning objectives for preschool. Read information on our curriculum and the standards for preschool from the California Department of Education and the Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence.

What to Expect From Preschool
Upon entering preschool, teachers place a strong emphasis on building language and literacy skills in addition to mathematics, communication, scientific reasoning, social studies, time and space, visual and performing arts, as well as movement and coordination. The skills acquired in preschool will facilitate your child's transition to pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs.
Our teachers believe in the importance of giving children a strong academic foundation in a loving Christian atmosphere. In addition to academics, our programs emphasize gardening, music, cooking, and library skills. We even include Bible studies on an age-appropriate level. When you meet our staff in person, you will have a better understanding of our commitment and dedication to each student.
Morning, Afternoon, and Summer Childcare
For parents who want to give their children additional learning opportunities, we offer before-school and after-school enrichment programs. We also provide childcare services during the summer!
