To the Editor:
Regarding your article "Lehigh kids in 'Trikeathon' raise more than a grand for St. Judes." Your second paragraph states, "The preschool is located in classrooms at the Christ United Methodist Church, but is not church-related. It is an independent school whose children's tuitions are paid for by the State of Florida."
The Crossroads Preschool was started by members of our church. They were the teachers and directors in the early years. The church has an elected Preschool Board that oversees the operations of the preschool and coordinates activities with the church. The preschool's finances go through the accounting process of the church.
The school has changed with the times by going through certification to provide the state sponsored VPK program where the state does pay the tuition for qualifying students. Other families pay for their children to attend the school.
