It is the mission of the preschool, as a ministry of Lutheran Church of the Cross, to be a Christ-centered, Bible-based environment where young children are nurtured, encouraged, and loved in the name of and for the sake of Jesus Christ to develop optimally to be all the Lord desires for them spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.
Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
— Mark 10:14
