IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Covid-19 Update for Fall 2020

As we all navigate through the realm of unknowns we are reminded that God knows and he is always here to direct our paths. He has and will continue to do so. May you be encouraged by that today!

Below you will find two documents that will be helpful in explaining what procedures, safety measures and protocols we at the Preschool at Calvary will be taking in the fall. We hope you feel comfortable knowing that we love your children and that their care and well-being is our top priority!

"Unpacking" all the recommendations from numerous agencies is truly not a one size fits all but we are doing our best with our families and staff in mind. Please know that the information here is subject to change.

Classes Offered

We'd love to have you join us!

A few spots open in the 3's class. Just 3 spots open in the Pre-K afternoon class

Pre-K Tuition: $150.00/month or $1350.00/year.

In recognizing the safety recommendations from state and local agencies regarding the reopening of schools, we as a preschool have updated our classes for the upcoming school year. A Pre-K afternoon session has been added and gives us an opportunity to have more open space with no more than 12 students each session. Please note that class times have also changed. Our 3 year old class will continue in a small class setting with the hours of 9:15-11:30am.

Important Updates

New classrooms await!

In just over 2 months, we plan on beginning our classes at the Preschool at Calvary! We are already missing everyone and are so excited for classes to start in September. We would like to share some updates with you. A lot of exciting things are happening behind the scenes in preparation for the fall. We will keep you posted on the renovation progress as we make our classroom fresh and new and set it up with lots of love for the 2020-2021 school year!

Our Mission

The Preschool at Calvary is a Christian preschool ministry available to our church, community, and our neighborhood, and we offer the program to all children regardless of race, color and national or ethnic origin. We provide a creative and developmentally appropriate learning environment, combined with Kindergarten readiness for preschool children ages 3 to 5. Our caring teachers illuminate joy that sets positive ripples of love, confidence, energy, and enthusiasm within the children and their learning.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to nurture and minister to each child with love, just as God so graciously loved us. We take our directive from the Word of God where we are told to assist parents in "Training up a child in the way he should go" (Proverbs 22:6). The main goals of the Preschool at Calvary are to encourage each child to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically at his or her individual pace. The children will do so through education in a Christ centered environment, social interaction, and concrete learning experiences.

Love grows here

You will too!
