Daycare & Preschool Programs

At Calvary Child Development Center, we approach all programs with the goal of supporting the highest level of your child’s all-round growth and development within a loving Christian environment.

For ages 2–4, we offer half-day Preschool and full-day Daycare options utilizing a structured schedule with our rich, integrated curriculum and specialized subject classes.

Classrooms are equipped with age-appropriate materials and toys divided into centers such as manipulatives, blocks, musical toys, housekeeping, dramatic play, science, and books. Time outside on the playground (weather permitting) or in the gym are part of the daily schedule to encourage physical development.

For specific methods of approach, areas of focus, skill-building, sample schedules, and program options, please see the following program descriptions.

    Daily Highlights

    Most days begin with circle time focusing on cognitive development and include songs, puzzles, finger puppets, games, or reading a story. The month, day of the week, pledge to the flag, and prayer are included in this segment — and maybe even an experiment or two!

    After circle time, the day continues with visits to the specialized subject classes. Science, Bible & Worship, Spanish, and Fun-N-Fitness teachers provide instruction through activities that correspond to the three-year-old curriculum. In addition, each class will go to the playground, have lunch or a snack, and spend time in their own classroom learning and play centers.

    Programs for 4s
    Daycare & Preschool

    Fours are getting ready! In our 4s program, we provide exposure to the skills which are foundational to success in kindergarten and elementary school. Our goal is to make learning fun!

    We incorporate reading readiness, language development, vocabulary, thinking and listening skills, social and emotional frameworks, phonics, math readiness, and printing readiness. Another focus, working on tasks independently in a busy classroom setting, a key indicator for Kindergarten readiness. Read more about our integrated curriculum.

    Our Bible curriculum lays the foundation for a godly character and lifestyle through practical development and application of Christ-like character traits such as love, faith, kindness, giving, thankfulness, honesty, wisdom, sharing, obedience, patience, fairness, forgiveness, joy, confidence, and loyalty.

    Three times a year, we provide individual assessments — identifying strengths and areas of need. We communicate with parents about their child's readiness for kindergarten the following year. Areas of assessment are fine motor, emotional and social skills, math concepts, language, and work habits.
