Partnering with families since 1947

Crossroads is a long-standing early childhood program with an unwavering commitment to providing high quality, developmentally appropriate care for children. We focus on the whole child, with equal attention given to emotional, social, physical and cognitive development. Our teachers are thoughtful companions on each child’s journey, scaffolding their learning and experiences to meet each individual where they are and help open limitless pathways of discovery. We believe in learning through play and hands-on exploration. Our curriculum is driven by the interests of the children, evolving continually to foster their sense of wonder, creativity and self-direction.

What other families say

If somebody would ask us to describe Crossroads, we could never find enough words. We have never seen a place that brings together so many good things: love, joy, warmth, patience, acceptance, kindness, respect to the children and to one another and so much moreā€¦.It was a privilege for our kids and for us to be a part of this beautiful community. Thank you so much for four wonderful years. You have become a second home for our children and for us.

-The Bar-Or, Jaffe-Dax and Engelhard Families

We have often been surprised and buoyed by observant reports and keen analysis of our child’s unique talents and challenges and we have always found the advice that the teachers offer to be both compassionate and useful.
