Holy Cross Early Learning Center

Ages 2 1/2 to 6 years. Qualistar Certified.

Dear Parents and Friends,

Thank you for allowing us to love and care for your children! 

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. Matthew 19:14. Each and every day that we have had the amazing opportunity and pleasure of being with your children, we all took a concerted effort to let your children know that ‘Jesus loves the little children’ as repeated often in the beloved song that many of us know.

It is with tears and saddened hearts that we share with you that Holy Cross Lutheran Church Early Learning Center will be closing. Due to an on going labor shortage and the continued physical and emotional struggles we all have in dealing with the COVID viruses; we are at a juncture where we are unable to maintain a staff level to continue to love, care and educate your children while additionally maintaining the requirements presented to us with State of Colorado requirements and health mandates.

Our last day of operation will be September 17th, 2021. Holy Cross has faithfully operated this Early Learning Center for over 20 years. Countless numbers of children have passed through our doors and we trust that our love and care for each of these children have forever touched them and their families knowing of the love that our Lord Christ Jesus has for all of them.

We have the following suggestions for day care with other Lutheran churches that will love your children as we have loved your children.
