ABOUT THE PROGRAM Calvary Preschool has a Christian emphasis program along with educational preparation for Kindergarten. We follow the standards set by the Ohio Department of education for early learning. We build on the alphabet each week including snacks provided by the preschool. Colors, numbers, shapes, ABC’s, cutting, opposites, recognizing and writing their names are just a few of the areas we cover during the school year. 

We have a beautiful outdoor playground for the boys and girls to use complete with a climbing wall. Inside, our walls have been decorated by the preschool committee and preschool teachers. We offer ample parking for our parents. Snacks are provided daily by the preschool which includes milk or 100% juice. Four’s and five’s go on field trips during the school year and we have special guests that come in during the winter months. The four’s and five’s have take home bags that are used over the week-ends. They provide activities and games for parents to do with their child. All the material needed is provided in the tote bag. The child picks the theme he wants to do. It is a wonderful learning tool for the child and the parents seem to enjoy it also. We have incorporated I.D. Badges for child pick-up, for your security. 

We invite you to come and visit our preschool along with your child. You may call the preschool office @ 567-259-3103 and we will answer any questions you may have.
