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 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.
With more than 25 years of experience teaching young children, Jenny Hughes is the heart of the Preschool at Calvary. Implementing her degree in Early Childhood Education and her experience managing a family childcare center, her vision for a preschool at her home church came to fruition in 2006. Jenny’s passion for ministry to children in the church and community that would help grow their hearts and minds has provided a godly, happy, and safe environment where she and her staff enthusiastically invest in the lives of the children and their families. Jenny and her husband Rich have two great sons and love spending time with the family. If she’s not teaching, you might find Jenny with the family on her front porch or at the beach.
Linda Hammer has always loved children and dreamed of a career as a teacher. She pursued her degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood. Children have always been a part of Linda’s life by being a home schooling mother of four and working in a childcare facility for more than twenty years. Linda’s love for Jesus and family are important parts of her life. When not teaching, she enjoys camping, hiking, reading, cooking and baking. Linda attends Cross Roads Baptist Church in Allentown and has been enjoying the opportunity to teach at the Preschool at Calvary since 2013.
As an aide in the classroom, Marsha really enjoys interacting with the children and helping to create a caring, organized and happy environment. She feels blessed to share Jesus’ love with the children and delights in the emotional, educational, and spiritual development of each little one to whom we minister. Her enthusiasm is contagious! Marsha and her husband Jeff have a great son and together they cherish family time such as working out at Maxx Fitness, tennis and biking. Marsha also is our prayer-warrior!
Nicole enjoys teaching young children. She shares her love of teaching and early childhood experience in numerous areas of ministry such as Calvary's kindergarten Discipleland class and the Spanish class during VBS. We truly value Nicole’s serving heart and her enjoyment in being active in the Wednesday night meal ministry, "Ladies night out" and VBS committees, and serving on the preschool board. Her most recent endeavor is joining the Operation Christmas Child team for Calvary as a local drop off center. Nicole values family time with husband Ulises and son Noah. Together, they enjoy days at the beach, Iron Pigs games, Lancaster and visiting family in Mexico.
