I love Holy Cross. I have had my kids here for about three years. The teachers in the infant room are the most caring and loving people. They are very attentive to what you want for your child and work with your wishes. My daughter has attended all the way to the oldest preschool class. They offer crafts, a music teacher that comes in, and water play in the summer time. My son is in the two year old room now with Miss Lindsey. She has changed and grown for the better since that last posting in 2010... I get a full report every day on what is going on and always feel my child has been attended to. I have even came in on surprise visits to be sure and they are always doing crafts, circle time, or other activities. She is very calm with them all and does a good job with structure. Overall, the best place I could ask for sad I am moving away!!

My daughter has attended from the 3rd grade until the 5th. Mrs Williams works with the students on an individual level which has made a vast difference in my daughters math skills. Parents are always welcome to visit and this practice assures that the children are continually learning and in a safe family friendly environment.

No school has more loving and supportive teachers than HC. As a parent of a child who has attended HC for almost two years, I am impressed with the love & care they show for my child. I think people need to remember that often preschool workers are EXTREMELY underpaid for the work they do. Please remember that the teachers give the children the freedom to have a fun time playing outside & while that means they may get a bit dirty, it doesn't mean that the teachers don't care. As far as I am concerned, if my child is obviously learning and enjoys going to school, then a few dirty faces and dripping noses are fine by me. Also, I would suggest that as a parent, you take time to get to know the teachers on a personal level. Sometimes if a parent seems to be judgmental or complains a lot, it is difficult for a teacher to be joyful with that parent at each interaction. Maybe thanking your teacher, or finding a way to connect with them would be a better way of going about it, than just blaming them for your child's face and nose. Just a thought! As for HC, you could find no finer school. I am thankful for HC and it's staff. I know my child is loved, challenged & cared for!!

We have had our son at Holy Cross for a year now.When he was in the infant/toddler room it was great.The staff there was attentive and caring.But he was moved into the 2yr old room and it has gone downhill.The staff are basically babysitters.My son comes home covered in dirt and mucus.They won't clean their faces.We have had issues with a Lindsey that works thier in the afternoons.Her demeanor and attitude is unprofessional and flippant.She seems to can't be bothered telling you about your Childs day.That also can't seem to remember if they gave your child medication!!Overall,I would take my child here if you don't have to deal with Lindsey who watchs the 2 and 3 year olds.

You couldn't ask for a better set of teachers and activities. They are so structured with the kids, and the teachers have been there forever. My kids will go there until they start regular school.

The child care staff at Holy Cross are wonderful! It's a family oriented atmosphere... staff and families are like one big family! They are very loving and caring and do a terrific job teaching the children. My daughter absolutely loves going there every morning... she has made lots of good friends and has learned so much! We will be sad leaving this fall to go to kindergarten.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
