"I wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for making my son Johnny so comfortable during his first year at CrossRoads. It is such a huge endeavor for a parent to find the right place to send their child for preschool and day-care. My decision was so easy from the moment that I stepped into CrossRoads. I distinctly remember the many greetings that I received the first time I stopped by to visit. After going to numerous other preschools, not once did any of them make me feel so welcome. That was only the beginning...
Johnny has made friends and learned so much this year! Coming from an in home day care, I now see how much he has progressed. I love that all the classrooms are filled with art projects that follow themes throughout the year. Each day I was able to follow what Johnny was doing in the classroom with the parent board. The weekly newsletters on e-mail were great and I discussed them with Johnny over dinner during the week. It was amazing to see the excitement in Johnny's eyes when he talked about what he did at school today. The events that you hosted each month were a wonderful way for me to be a part of his classroom and I especially loved the Christmas Pageant! I could not believe my eyes when I saw him on stage. He sang his song for months and weeks after.
Thank you for making such wonderful memories for my son. He learned a lot and really came out of his shell by the end of the year! You all do a great job at what you do. You have successfully created a loving environment with Christian values and a strong educational focus where children can thrive."

"Joanna, thank you so much to you and your staff for the last couple of years and your work with Nathan. You are all simply amazing with what you do for the kids. The peace of mind given by knowing your child is in good hands, is safe, is getting some exposure to spirituality and moral values necessary in life, is constantly learning about things in various subjects, developing skills in arts/crafts and is encouraged for creativity are all simply PRICELESS. As is being taught to respect one another at an early age. We have not hesitated to recommend your program to friends/other people and will continue to do so, or, God willing, place any future child we may have with you. Heather and I both have parents that were career educators, you are all very much appreciated for all that you do.

- Courtney Danna August 2012
"We couldn't be happier with CrossRoads! The entire staff is warm and friendly and our son's teachers are wonderful and provide a loving environment. He is learning so much daily and has made many friends in his class. He looks forward to going to school each day and sometimes does not even want to leave. :) We couldn't ask for any more than that!!!"

“I would just like to say that my son Charlie has really done well at CrossRoads. CrossRoads has taught him to count, ABC’s, reading a little, behavior, interaction with other kids, discipline, and many other things. CrossRoads has opened the door to making me look at where my child will go next as he moves on to Kindergarten next year and what is best for him so that he is not bored because he already knows what he is being taught. I appreciate all your hard work and have never had a problem with anything at CrossRoads and would recommend the CrossRoads staff highly.”
-Chuck Carlson May 2011
"Joanna: Hi, it's Melinda Clay, Logan's mom. I am sad to say that Logan will be leaving Crossroads next month. His last day will officially be Friday August 6th. I just want to say that having our son at your preschool has been a wonderful experience. I truly believe he is ready for Kindergarten. I was overwhelmed at the Kindergarten Orientation by what they expect of the little ones these days (much different from my Kindergarten days!) They discussed a curriculum similar to what Logan is already doing at Crossroads things such as Journaling and centers. Your program is structured but not too regimented that he was not allowed to still be a little boy! Your teachers are caring and excited about educating the kids in new and exciting ways each week. Thank you to you and the teachers for a positive experience and I hope you will have the space available when his little sister Kadence is ready for preschool!
-Melinda and Chris Clay" July 2010
“CrossRoads has been a wonderful environment for Mitchell. I believe he is the only child who has been in attendance since the day you opened! It has been wonderful for him from both a caring environment and development perspective and our family is very grateful for how well you have worked with us with patience and the best interest of the kids. It is wonderful the way you recognize each child's individual needs and have patience accordingly (particularly with things like the ongoing potty training challenges). Many thanks to you and your wonderful team for getting him ready for the big, bad world of Kindergarten!”
-Heather Mundie August 2010
“I also wanted to add how pleased we are with CrossRoads. Mia loves it, and we really see some great improvements in her letters and numbers. She is quite happy every day we pick her up!”
-Andrew McGlone September 2010
“Last night I was reading a book with Noah as we do before he goes to bed every night. Anyway, we were reading the book and he said “Look”. I kept reading to him and sure enough there on the page were the words “Look! Look!”. I asked him how he knew that word and he said “That is one of my sight words from Pre-School Mommy”. I just thought that was really cool. After that we continued to read and see if he could find any other site words. (The next one he found was stop). Thought the teachers might want to know that Noah (as I am sure other kids are too) are starting to recognize some words. It is always so exciting when they start reading (even if it is a little bit).”
-Lynda May 2010

"Just wanted you guys to know what a great job Carter’s teachers and team must be doing..... This is just precious to me.... I bought him the Veggie Tales A Star of Christmas dvd and he asked me where it came from. So I said the 'Christian Book Store' .. Of course a puzzled look came upon his face...'What?' So realizing he might not understand Christian.... I said the 'Jesus' store. He pointed to his little chest and said.. 'You got it from my heart? How did you get into my heart? With a key?' How precious is that!!?!?!!! Somewhere somehow he must have been told or sings ...to 'store’ Jesus in his heart. Or at least that Jesus lives in his heart. That’s the only way I can think he would associate store and Jesus. Too funny!"
