We are passionate about redeeming the time when parents can invest in the lives of their children. The elementary years are a precious time when children are learning the values, attitudes, and actions that will inform the rest of their lives.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”  Mark 10:14 is the foundation on which the CrossPointe Preparatory Pre-Kindergarten operates daily.  Children need to know they are a blessing to God, to their parents and family, and to other Christians.  Parents are the most important teachers and nurturers of their children.  We want to partner with parents in teaching each child that he or she is special because God made him or her.
