As a ministry of the Simi Valley United Methodist Church, our mission is to provide children with a nurturing preschool experience based on Christian beliefs and values. We focus on the whole child as we help them develop spiritually, physically, cognitively, academically, personally and socially. This is accomplished through thoughtfully planned, playful learning and developmentally appropriate activities designed to help foster a lifelong love of learning within each child. As teachers, we recognize that children have individual strengths and come to us with an innate desire to learn. We wish to develop relationships with families, so that as a community we can work together to support your child(ren).
We are licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services to serve children three through five years of age who are toilet trained and two year old children who do not need to be fully toilet trained yet. An initial registration conference is required in order to complete appropriate forms, discuss policies and procedures of CrossRoads and answer any questions families may have about our program. Our hours of operation are 6:30am to 6:00pm.
We work hard to give our students the best combination of play, bible stories and lessons, and learning time to help them individually succeed not only at CrossRoads, but as they leave our program.
Our curriculum is designed to provide a well-balanced early childhood experience in all areas of growth, which includes the following:
Science & Nature
Reading and Math Readiness
Bible Stories, Songs and Prayers
We hold chapel once a week led by either the Director or the Family, Youth & Children Pastor. Our chapel service is designed with preschoolers in mind and consists of developing church etiquette, singing songs of worship, and teaching bible stories & lessons.
We strive to create an atmosphere that surrounds children with experiences that reflect God’s love for them through modeled relationships and sacred time that includes stillness, prayer and wonder. While we are a Christian environment, we honor and value children of all faith traditions.
