"This was a wonderful program for my four year old. She is a child that seeks knowledge and learning, and she is also an only child so learning early childhood socials skill is important for her. Her teachers have had such a positive influence in her life. Every day she comes home and tells me of the many things she has learned during the day. The Family Partner gave me some wonderful ideas to help her. Her teachers have given her a love of learning, and she enjoys school which I hope will continue thoughout her school years. She has learned both upper and lower case letters, she can write her name and is always trying to write new words. The trips to the library have given her a love for reading, and while I always read to her, she now seems to want to read herself. I think Holy Cross Head Start has truly given my child the gift of wanting to learn and they have done it with the love and patience that makes her want to go to school every day, as she doesn't want to miss anything. Thank you for giving my child the gift of learning." -Karen C.
"I can't express to people enough how Holy Cross Head Start has really changed my child for the best. He is more socially interactive with other children. His learning skills have come such a long way. I am so happy with everything he has achieved in school, my husband and I want our next child in this program! The teachers are also the best teachers that any preschool should have. Thank you so much!" -Melanie M.
"Holy Cross Head Start is a wonderful program and I am so grateful to the teachers and staff. My daughter absolutely loves school, and has flourished greatly these past few months. I absolutely love her teachers and wish she could have them every year, they are amazing and truly care about each child and are so attentive to their needs. My daughter has learned so much! She came home counting in Spanish and singing her colors in Spanish. She talks to me every day about how much she loves school and her new friends and how much fun she has! I am very impressed with the attention and education she gets even at this young an age. The school also has many programs parents can be involved in and resources to take advantage of. I decided to be involved in the Head Start Parent Association and have even helped plan fun events for the parents and children! I can honestly say I love Holy Cross Head Start and would recommend them to any parent looking for a great and caring environment for their child. Every staff member from the center director to the teachers and volunteers truly care about your child and know how to provide a fun and safe learning environment!" -Jessica F.
"The Holy Cross Head Start program has been a very good experience for our daughter. She has developed her social skills at a higher level and has also gained so much confidence this past year, academically. She is a very independent little girl and has grown to do many things on her own. Another significance of the Head Start program is that my daughter has been exposed to a variety of foods this year, which in turn have made her more prone to try anything that is put in front of her. We like the fact that she gets a well-balanced meal at breakfast and lunch. It is extremely important nowadays." -Kristen L.
