The Calvary Child Development Center began in 1977 as a nonprofit Christian preschool and has grown to an enrollment of close to 800 children in preschool and daycare programs, ages six months through five years. We are a ministry of Calvary Church, and we share the church's campus and facilities as well as its Christian focus and loving atmosphere.
Our primarily hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities target all aspects of early childhood development, while emphasizing the love of Jesus Christ. We strive to maintain a balance of child-initiated play with activities that are teacher-directed, to provide a well-rounded experience.
Specialty classes and curriculum
Our program offers a unique, customized curriculum for each age level, from infants through kindergarten, as well as labs and specialized classrooms and teachers in science, art, music, computers, multicultural studies, and more. Our well-trained staff follows a planned, formal schedule of instruction each day. The lesson plans incorporate a variety of fun-filled activities. Our staff is actively involved with the childrenÂ’s daily activities, enjoying the experiences and wonder of learning alongside the children.
Small class size
We offer small class sizes to ensure that your child has the individualized attention he or she needs on a daily basis. Our ratios are:
| ||6-9 Months||1:4|
| ||9-12 Months||1:5|
| ||12-23 Months||1:6|
| ||2 Years||1:7 or 1:8|
| ||3 Years||1:8|
| ||4 Years||1:9|
| ||5 Years||1:10|
These numbers reflect the maximum number of students we will place in a class. Many of our classrooms have lower ratios than those stated above.
We are annually inspected by the North Carolina Division of Child Development under religious exemption status.
