Kindergarten Philosophy

The Holy Cross Kindergarten program is both developmental and academic. During the morning hours, the curriculum is traditional - reading readiness, language, social studies, science and math. The teachers emphasize an active hands-on approach to learning. Workbooks and work sheets are kept to a minimum. Students work in groups and have many manipulatives and games to help them learn.  The teachers also include prayer and religion in the classroom.
