About Mount Calvary Preschool
At Mount Calvary Preschool they believe the best preschool experience comes from providing opportunities for learning and growth through development, age-appropriate exploration, discovery, and hands-on experiences within a caring, fun, safe, Christ-centered setting.

They believe God created each child unique and special with his/her own method of learning. By providing a positive environment with a variety of learning styles, children thrive in becoming a self-sufficient individual.

They integrate age-appropriate Biblical principles and practices into every aspect of the day and use the Bible as a guidebook for everyday living.

Their themes provide the foundational learning needed to prepare a child for kindergarten, as well as Bible-based building blocks of learning for a child’s spiritual growth. A strong emphasis is placed on the development of Godly character traits such as love, kindness, obedience, gentleness, truthfulness and personal accountability.  

These character traits are illustrated using Bible stories and Biblical characters.  Children are taught about their uniqueness as an individual who is both created and loved by God.
