Calvary Pre-Kindergarten Program

This transitional kindergarten class serves children ages 4.6-5.5 (in September) and features a small class size, a great student-teacher ratio, and a dedicated classroom space. Classes are limited to 15-18 students with two fully certified teachers. The program runs from 8:30am-1:30pm, Monday through Friday.

In this class, students are given broad and varied hands-on experiences in letter recognition, early math and literacy, science, exploration of the community through field trips, plus an exemplary social-emotional curriculum of ‘life skills” that prepares children for the social dynamics of elementary school. The small class size and longer day allows the pre-kindergarten children to pursue interests through in-depth experiences which change each year depending on the interests of a particular class.

The pre-kindergarten class also participates in music, art and gymnastics instruction by our school specialists, and on a daily basis eats lunch at school and enjoys the rooftop play space for at least an hour.
