Early Childhood & MDO

2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR

Holy Cross Lutheran Church Early Childhood Education Program Information & Description

Our Early Childhood/Mother's Day Out returns to school when the Nederland ISD does. The last we heard that would mean we begin on Monday, September 11th and Tuesday September 12. Please pass the word.


9:00 AM until 2:00 PM
ECE enrollment for 2017-2018 continues.  Please call the school office (409)722-2177
for more information and to make appointments for registration.  

Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

The Holy Cross (ECE) Early Childhood Education Program is part of the overall ministry of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Nederland, Texas.

The ECE program is highly regarded in Mid and South Jefferson County for its excellence. The Port Arthur News awarded the program a "blue ribbon" as the best in the area.

Holy Cross' ECE program reaches far beyond the membership of the congregation. Over 90% of the children who attend the program are not members of Holy Cross.

The ECE Program operates four days a week, Monday through Thursday, offering classes for students 18 months to 4 years of age. The classes are from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM on those days. The ECE calendar follows a modified school calendar of the Nederland Independent School District.

The ECE Program balances the development of educational skills with the development of the faith of the child. We offer chapel on Tuesday and Wednesday at 9:30 AM. The chapel services are conducted by the Pastor and the Director of Christian Education. (You are more than welcome to come and observe.)

KAY BROWN is the ECE Director and she can be contacted at 722-2177 or  holycrossece@gmail.com  for further information.

Chapeltime is every Tuesday and Wednesday (during the school year) at 9:30am in our Church Sanctuary.  Anyone is welcome to join us for Chapel Time!

During Chapel, our professional staff uses puppetry and song
to help teach God's Word, the Bible, to our children.

The following is a link to some of the songs we will/have sung during Chapel Time!
