Approach to Excellence
Mt. Calvary School has been successful in our mission of providing a Christian education of excellence where students C.A.R.E. by developing Christian values, Academic advancement, becoming Responsible citizens, and Effective communicators. We are able to reach this goal through our “Approach to Excellence” in education as well as in our thorough selection of preschool curriculum.
Children are encouraged to think, reason, question, problem solve, and experiment as they develop through active learning. Print rich learning environments and an extensive choice of materials facilitate language, literacy, and math development appropriate to each age group.
Spiritual growth is developed in all children through activities involving Bible stories and songs, understanding the importance of Jesus’ love, attending weekly Children’s Chapel, and instilling the importance of treating others in a Christian way at all times.
Our developmentally appropriate programs provide opportunities for children to broaden and deepen their knowledge by providing a variety of media and experiences such as drawing, painting, construction of models, dramatic play, story time, music, movement, science, cooking and writing. Our nurturing environment is designed to encourage a balance of child initiated and teacher supported exploration activities. We encourage the “total growth” of the whole child in the following areas:
Blocks, large and small manipulatives, puzzles, clay, playdough, sand and water
“Our children have gone to Mt. Calvary Preschool for three years and I highly recommend them. As a parent you want to find a loving, fun and safe preschool for your child to grow and learn. A great bonus is that they are academically strong as well. When our daughter started Kindergarten at the public school, I noticed she was repeating what she had learned the previous year at Mt. Calvary Preschool. Our children are excited to go to preschool and I give all the credit to the teachers and administrator for making it a fun and loving place for the kids.”
