Cicero Christian School
Day Care Centers & Nurseries
"My daughter has been at Crosslight this year and we have had a very positive experience. The teachers are very warm and caring, the facilities are clean and safe, and there is a good balance between structure and play. There is a schedule that they follow every day which includes circle time, snack time, language, math, science and Bible/Practical Life. The schedule and routine are age appropriate for children ages 3-5. The children are allowed to work and learn freely with the varied toys and learning materials which are very important for learning how to share, the concept of personal space, interacting with different people, etc. Also, academics (e.g., counting, letters, shapes, colors, following directions, early literacy skills) are embedded throughout the day through songs, games, activities and stories in all subject areas. My child loves to go to school and I really appreciate that the teachers strive to find authentic opportunities for learning instead of taking the lazy way out and throwing worksheets at the kids. The part of the school we appreciate the most though is the extra attention the teachers give to the students. My child gets one on one attention with each teacher every day and in turn her love for learning is greater than it has ever been. My daughter has had a difficult time transitioning to school in the past and once coming to Crosslight, she is a different child and the teachers have all eased that transition immensely. She is confident and excited to start each day. I look forward to my other children having the opportunity to attend Crosslight for preschool!"
