Our Mission

Growing loving followers of Christ through early care and education.

Our Purpose

Cross View Early Childhood Center, a ministry of Cross View Lutheran Church, exists to provide children a place where their faith can be nurtured. In this safe and secure environment, we provide the children with a wide variety of age-appropriate learning experiences. The children are free to explore their learning environment while receiving guidance in activities, allowing each child to experience success. All this is done as we seek to reach out into the community, meeting the needs of families and offering them support. Just as Jesus “took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them,” we, too, accept all children into an atmosphere of caring Christian love.

Our Philosophy

We believe …
  • Children are important to Christ.  Jesus said: “Let the little children come to me and forbid them not, for such is the kingdom of God.”

  • Each child is a unique creation of God, and we strive to help each child attain a healthy self-concept and individuality.

  • Children learn best about God’s world through active experimentation and exploration.

  • Play is a vehicle for learning and enables each child to progress through each developmental stage.

  • Children should be provided a warm and loving environment that maximizes growth potential in the intellectual, physical, emotional, social and spiritual areas.

  • Early childhood education is a ministry to children and their families.
