"Calvary Christian Preschool has been a very big blessing to our two boys.The teachers are very warm, patient, caring and more than willing to go above and beyond to make school an exciting and wonderful experience for every child. It was amazing to see how much they learned and how much they grew socially over the school year.They especially loved the field trips and the pajama party. We are looking forward to being able to enjoy the experience all over again with our daughter."

CALVARY CHRISTIAN PRESCHOOL
Calvary Christian Preschool is for three-, four- and five-year olds.The school provides a child with learning experience in a Christian setting. At the school, many opportunities are found to talk about God, His love and what He has given us. The school is not a day-care center; it is a learning experience that involves the parents as well as the children. The school has dedicated teachers who are willing to give extra time and energy to make it a superior experience for the child.
We seek to maintain a maximum of 16 students in the three-day classes, and 14 in the two-day classes with a minimum of 10 students in each class.

Fire Company visit to teach fire safety.
The two-day class is for children who will be three-years old as of September 1. It is a social and learning experience for three to four year olds. Children learn to work and play in a peer-group setting. Music, art and gross-motor (large-muscle) skills are stressed. We talk about God and relate Him to things a three-year old is capable of understanding. There are learning experiences with colors, shapes, letters, plants, animals and musical instruments. It’s a first step away from home; the staff works closely with parents to make it a happy one.
Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays from 9 to 11:30 p.m.
The three-day class is for children who will be four-years old as of September 1.

Field trips give children first-hand experience using the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom. The true meanings of religious holidays are emphasized. The children learn responsibility with small jobs each day.
