Benton's Cross Roads Preschool is a ministry that provides academic excellence within a Christ centered, loving environment. We minister to the "whole" child as we strive to enhance social, physical, emotional, spiritual, and academic development. Our expectations are high and our students rise to meet these expectations. Our ministry also reaches beyond our students as we extend our love and expertise to the entire family unit and dedicate ourselves to upholding our standards of excellence.
We use the A Beka Curriculum, a Christ centered phonics, math, and science based program produced by Pensacola Christian College. In addition, students are offered a variety of daily activities including dramatic play, arts and crafts, story time, and creative free play. Monthly themes are reinforced weekly and daily with corresponding academic fun sheets, activities, songs, and finger plays. Each week, different numbers and letters are explored.
Music plays a tremendously important role in our academic environment. Students enjoy thirty minutes weekly in a special Music and Movement Class designed to promote the love of music, as well as to enhance all areas of development. Additional songs and finger plays are presented by the teachers within the individual classrooms on a daily basis.
Age appropriate literature encourages language development and teaches children about the world they live in. Interesting books are rotated weekly within the classrooms to provide an ongoing supply of new and exciting material for the students to enjoy. Bible stories, poems, puppets, and songs teach positive and loving character traits.

1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
