Building community is very important to Cross. We believe that the world becomes a better place when people work together to improve their shared environments. As a result of this, while we place a strong emphasis on community building skills in all of our programs, we as an organization also reach out to the communities around us to offer our support and to work together on projects that are important to all of us. Here are some of those organizations:

What we value is home education. Regular life, greeting with smiles, aligning shoes, Cleaning up (ordering), helping, keeping promises … We can live powerfully in any environment regardless of times I bring up children. May the garden be another home. We chose a house and made it a dreamy nursery house. Gardens, homes, and communities are the trinity to foster the growth of children. Learn More
