We love our 4-year-old and 5-year-old kindergarteners!  The option of half day or full day is offered to our 4-year-olds.  Our 5-year-olds spend the full school day at Mount Calvary.  This allows our families to easily have multiple students at Mount Calvary and simplify drop-off/pick-up.  Our 5-year-olds are encouraged to act like big brothers and sisters to the 4-year-olds in preparation for moving to 1st grade.  Every once in a while, activities are done together, but the learning objectives are very different because of their developmental stages!
