Holy Cross Preschool: Filling Tiny Hearts with Big Faith
Holy Cross Preschool believes that each child has the ability to strive and challenge themselves through curriculum that is developmentally appropriate, engaging and unique to meet each child’s social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual development. Holy Cross Preschool provides our students with a strong foundation of faith, while preparing them to continue their education at Holy Cross School.
Our staff provides a safe and supportive place that encourages open communication and the ability for children to express their feelings and work together on problem solving skills.
Holy Cross Preschool acknowledges the importance of kindergarten readiness to provide a strong foundation. In doing so, we separate our Pre-Kindergarten and preschool to focus on the necessary skills to make them successful.
We encourage a play-based active learning environment to allow for many opportunities to practice social interaction and relationship skills.
We promote children’s active involvement with activities, and materials that offer children opportunities for responsible and cooperative roles in the classroom.
Our preschool students participate in many community building events.
Every fall close to Patriot Day, we participate in "Cookies for Courage" along with grades K-8 to honor the First Responders of Santa Cruz County.
Every spring we participate in the annual Trike-A-Thon for St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
Every Christmas we help to brighten the lives of the elderly residents at Dominican Oaks by making decorations for their Holiday celebrations.
