Calvary Children's School Mission is to provide the highest quality preschool education in a Christian environment to the children of our community. Founded in June 1998 by the Calvary United Methodist Church, we are a not-for-profit corporation, fully licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, voluntarily monitored by Arlington County. Calvary also participates in the Virginia Quality Program.
Our curriculum is structured to help children learn through play. By modifying the environment, materials and experiences, teachers expand awareness and scaffold learning for later years. Our program offers diversified opportunities for our children to develop positive feelings and attitudes about themselves and others. It is our goal to help families develop happy, adjusted, secure individuals in a climate of freedom, with discipline and affection.
Our school operates Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from 10am to 2pm. Before care is available from 9-10am and after care is available from 2-3:30 for an additional fee.
Children do not have to be toilet-trained to attend. There are one, two, three, and four day options for all ages. Before and after care options are available. Children of all religious faiths and ethnic backgrounds are welcome. Scholarships are available.
Adults who wish to visit should attend an Open House or e-mail for an appointment with the Director for registration information. Classes are usually in session during visits. Please contact Beth Posey for more information.
