Early Education Accreditation

Cross of Hope Preschool is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and promotes a quality experience for your child.  Accreditation, a national benchmark of quality for early education centers, is a voluntary process validated by peer review and involving systematic self-evaluation against nationally accepted best-practice standard (higher than state minimum licensing requirements). 

A Christian program holds the view that each child is a gift-a miracle from God's hand-and the program endeavors for every learning experience to enhance and develop each child's full potential in Christ. A quality program educates every aspect of the child; spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and intellectual.
