WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE!
First and foremost, we are a ministry of Crossroads Community Church and adhere to their mission to:
We encourage our children and staff to follow this philosophy, both in and out of the classroom.
Because of this, the needs of the families who attend our center are important to us, and we strive to meet those needs any way we can. One way we do this is by offering flexible scheduling to minister to those families that do not have traditional weekly work schedules.
Crossroads Kids Connection was formed as a ministry of the Crossroads Community Church in 2007. After doing a local survey of the community needs, the church's founding pastors, Jim and Aileen Playter sought to provide childcare for the families of Johnson Creek and the surrounding areas in a severely underserved market.
Since then, we have been privileged to serve more than 100 families from Jefferson, Dodge, Dane, and Waukesha counties. We started out as a class of 5 children at our first campus on River Dr. and have since grown to 5 classrooms at our new facility in the old high school.
During the last 11 years, we have provided all of our children with opportunities for learning, growth, and love. We have worked in conjunction with the local school district to prepare our preschoolers for 4K and Kindergarten. We have also provided 4K classroom space for the school district. We've been involved in community activities such as the community Christmas tree lighting and face painting at the summer festivals. Our staff and children enjoy being highly involved in the community.
As we look towards the future, we are excited to continue our partnership with our community and the school district to provide quality care for the children in our community and surrounding areas for years to come.
The safety of the children is our top priority. We take every precaution to ensure the daily safety of every child. Every adult working with our children is given a careful background check and thorough training. All of our teachers complete regular training for:
The on-site play area is a fenced-in and safe area for all ages.
We are in the process of becoming a YoungStar certified center.
What is YoungStar?
YoungStar is Wisconsin's child care quality rating and improvement system. We give parents the tools and information they need to raise happy, healthy kids. And, we help preschools, home-based programs, learning centers, and other child care providers give children safe, nurturing places to grow. Watch this video for more information. Learn more by visiting the DCF website.
Our purpose is to provide a safe, clean, and healthy environment to all children ranging in ages from six weeks to twelve years. We strive to meet their social, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs while the children are in our care. We believe that children should begin their relationship with God from the beginning. Evangelical Christian teaching will be part of the children's daily curriculum. We will accomplish all this through a well-educated and certified staff, carefully developed comprehensive programming, and above all, through love and acceptance.
