The Orthodox Christian Approach

Holy Protection Orthodox Christian Preschool opened its doors in 2009 in response to requests from several families for a quality preschool based on Christian beliefs and values. One may ask, “What would it be like to experience an Orthodox Christian preschool?”  The word Orthodox simply means “sound or correct in opinion or doctrine, especially in theological or religious doctrine.”   Orthodoxy is the Ancient Faith as taught by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In the preschool setting, the children learn that we are all made and loved by God, we are called to be like Him and we thank Him for all we have.



“Please read what past parents have to say about our school:

“Our family could not be more pleased with the nurturing, structured and safe environment Holy Protection provides for our son…….he has blossomed into a very confident and independent little student…We would highly recommend HPOCP to any family looking for a great preschool experience.”


“…the teachers valued her academic and social growth…..they taught her more than just readiness skills for Kindergarten.  They taught her kindness, friendship and faith.”

“I have no end of praise for HPOCP…….  They have two of the finest and most loving preschool teachers I’ve ever encountered…..”

“……the teachers genuinely love their students.  They are such a positive influence on the children.  I give the school 10 thumbs up!”




Our Mission

Our mission is to cultivate each child’s sense of self, awareness of others and responsibility to the world in which they live. We strive to teach and be examples in all areas– academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual. We see each child as a unique gift from God and strive to enable each to develop at his or her own pace in a consistent and secure environment.

Holy Cross & Holy Trinity

The two Orthodox churches in Stroudsburg addressed the need by collaboratively establishing Holy Protection Preschool.
A  board comprised of members from both Holy Cross and Holy Trinity governs the school. The priests from both communities serve on the board.
