We feel that play is the most important aspect of young children’s lives… it is essential to their well-being and development.

New concepts, new skills and new understanding come to children through play.


At Cross Road Children’s Center, children learn and develop a healthy self-concept, security and a feeling of success.

Our goal is to educate the whole child while providing and environment that sparks creativity and growth.


Our learning activities promote growth and development socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically through interactions with adults, children, and materials.

Because our students are always learning-we are too!
