Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"
At the Calvary Child Development Center, we seek foremost to glorify the Lord and make Him known. We want all the children who attend our program to know that God loves them.
By nurturing children daily in this manner, we pray that we can teach them scriptural morals and values, and that these truths will allow them to develop strong character in a happy and secure environment.
Vision Statement
Our vision is to have the children and families who enter the doors of Calvary Child Development Center sense the love of God as we build connecting relationships with them.
