activities

Science

During this class the children will be introduced to science experiments which will spark their curiosity and encourage them to ask questions and process how things happen and learn how to find the answers. “Curiosity is natural to children, but they need help understanding how to make sense of what they see and to realize that science is in our daily lives.”

activities

Music & Movement

Children naturally love music! Whether it’s soft and soothing or a lively tune, children can feel it both physically and emotionally. During this class the children will enjoy learning different music and movement activities that promote muscle growth, build social skills, gross / motor, and coordination skills. Creativity and imagination will help your child explore cause and effect, improve balance and coordination and rhythm through dance and movement activities.

activities

Spanish

Children under the age of five are naturally efficient language learners with a great capacity to learn and decipher different languages. This is why we feel it is the best opportunity to teach Spanish to our students. The children will be introduced to Spanish learning activities through music, visual aids, and games.

activities

Literature

Reading is one of the most important skills a child needs to have for a successful education and to prepare them for the future. During this class, the children will read different stories through puppets, flannel board and a number of props to enhance the stories. The children will also learn the different roles authors and illustrators partake in each storybook. Learning this helps develop reading skills that are needed to prepare children academically.

activities

Sign Language

Learning a second language is fun and has many developmental benefits. Sign Language is a blessing for children that are visual, spatial, or tactile learners. Learning a second language raises your child’s IQ. “One in ten Americans have some degree of hearing loss. A child knowing just a few signs can make the difference to help and interact with a hearing impaired person.”

ABOUT MRS. CROSS

SaveSave

Tammy Cross started her career teaching Early Childhood Education in 1980. She earned two Associate Certificates in Early Childhood, one through the Council of Recognition in Early Child Development and the other through Concordia University in Early Childhood of Lutheran Teaching. She currently holds over 241 certificates of training classes and seminars in administration, human resources and early childhood development. Tammy has been in administration for over 13 years. She is known for taking a small preschool of 42 students to a preschool of 250 students with a wait list of 145. She gives God all the credit of these blessings and accomplishments. She feels God is guiding her path in early childhood and has blessed her with the patience and love for children and is focused on preparing children to become successful, loving and compassionate adults.

Tammy opened Crossroads Christian Academy in 2011. Her philosophy at CCA is to use the highest, most effective, teaching techniques which are accomplished through structured play, learning centers and accountability.  We are proud to say she received an award by Mayor Carolyn Goodman and Las Vegas City Council on May 26, 2016 for her dedication to early childhood education.

Tammy's passion in life is bringing the awareness of early childhood and the importance of developmental skills to parents so they may set their children up for success. Studies prove, if children do not learn specific skills from birth to 5 years old, they may never be able to develop those skills to its full potential. Tammy feels we need to introduce children to as much information as possible to plant the seeds of asking questions so they can discover and develop their problem solving skills.

Tammy's goal in life is to prepare children for the future. She is proud to say Crossroads Christian Academy's reputation speaks loudly and that we have been very successful at accomplishing this goal.
