  • Class Overview

  • Classroom 8

    We are going to have a fun and exciting year in room 8. Children range from ages 3-5 in our room. The children will make new friends and learn new skills. Throughout the year we will be fostering social development through small group and whole group activities. We will be using Touch Math and Handwriting Without Tears to supplement our curriculum to teach literacy and math skills. We will also focus on developing each child’s play skills, self-help skills and overall academic skills.

    • I have a 1 year old and a 5 year old who have been atNoah is nearly independent in dressing and toileting and so much more. Hope is priceless and what others took away from us in an already devastating situation, Crossroads Center for Children teachers and administrators gave back two-fold.tending for a year now. I can not tell you how much I adore and appreciate all of the wonderful staff.
