The early childhood programs were created to help families with all their educational needs from birth to age 5. 

Our Pre-Kindergarten program offers a concentrated educational experience for children ages 2-½ to 5. Pre-K offers half-day classes, with a full-day option available for older children.

Calvary Hourly Childcare helps families with short-term care from as little as one hour a day to as much as seven hours. A full curriculum is followed for both toddlers and preschoolers. 
Pre-K families often lengthen their time at Calvary by using this service. 

The Calvary Childcare Center offers full-time childcare with a preschool educational component built into the day. The center enrolls children ages 12 weeks to age 5.
