Child Care for Children Ages 6 Weeks to 5 Years

Calvary Place provides nurturing child care in a downtown setting. Here children and their parents experience a faith-based atmosphere, in a multicultural setting, which includes socio-economic, religious, ethnic and racial diversity. Calvary Place provides a supportive environment which allows both parent and staff caregivers to nurture children effectively. The developmentally appropriate curriculum encourages the growth of motor, language, cognitive, emotional, and social skills.

The center opened in September 1993, after research by Calvary Episcopal Church identified downtown child care as a need in the community. Calvary Place is a private, non-profit corporation which is governed by a diverse and experienced volunteer Board of Directors representing parents, Calvary, and the community. Calvary Place received its National Accreditation in August 1997 and continues to be accredited today after several reviews.
