All 5 of my children attended Calvary before I became an assistant teacher here in 2007. I believe in the values of the program, have been extremely pleased with every staff member my children came in contact with, have always felt at home and part of the Calvary Methodist Preschool family, and last but not least I was happy with how prepared each of my kids was for kindergarten. Now that I am an employee of the school, I can truly say that we treat every child as an individual, and care for them as if they were our own. We teach them how to be a student so they are ready to learn when they get to elementary school.
I’ve had the delight of spending some time in the classroom as a “substitute” and have shared in some of the learning, the routines, the themes and practices that are in place to ready our little ones for life beyond Calvary. Following each of these occasions, I recall walking back to my car feeling extremely pleased, confident and relieved in that once difficult decision that my wife and I made to send our twins to Calvary (nothing against the program of course, sending your first ones to school no matter where is a very difficult milestone).
From morning greetings which encourage socialism & confidence to daily announcements which prepare our children in the saying of The Pledge, Days of the Week, the weather outside and daily tasks which promote leadership, the Calvary staff have done a superb job in introducing our girls to the world beyond our home.
And speaking of home, ours is littered with the most fantastic art work; hanging in every direction and each piece speaks to and details very specific themes within the Calvary curriculum that our girls have (1) learned and (2) pridefully shared with us. It’s the later part of this statement which gives us encouragement & confidence as parents that we made the correct decision in Calvary Methodist Preschool!
I have you to thank for inspiring my son Aakash to come out of his shell. He loves you so dearly, and he seems to think that you are made of magic. Thank you for being so good and so patient with him. I’m so glad for teachers like Calvary Methodist Preschool who really make a difference in a child’s life. Thank you for being the guiding light, Thank you all teachers for everything that they do.
