The John Calvin Early Learning Center provides a comprehensive program to prepare students for success in learning and in life. Our school offers a very academic curriculum which is designed to instill in the child a lifetime love of learning, a desire to seek answers, plus critical and creative thinking skills.
Upon arrival the child works on manipulatives for fine motor skills. Next is a circle time in which lessons are introduced or reviewed, such as phonetic sounds, social studies, numbers, colors, (depending on the age of the class). Snack time and playground time follow. After playground time is another academic session (writing, math, etc.) usually done at their tables. Lunch follows and a quiet time to choose books or puzzles. Afternoons might include art, music or hands-on science activities. Students prepare for departure and they are read to from the high-quality children's literature.
