"Katie and Tom are focused on Suri and as part of their divorce agreement, Suri will spend Christmas with Katie," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
"They are trying to be amicable and Tom will see Suri over the holidays but on Christmas, Suri will be with Katie and her family," added the source.
Suri was spotted back at her school in New York on Monday after spending last week in London with Cruise.
According to the source, Cruise, 50, hired four guards to protect Suri and treated her to a day at the Harry Potter World theme park in Hertfordshire on Friday.
Holmes, 33, spent the holiday with her own family in her native Ohio.
