Welcome to East Calvary Day Care Center

Our staff reflects the cultural diversity of the children we serve.

We value and work closely with the Parent Advisory Committee as a partner in the educational process and help parents achieve their family goals.

About US

East Calvary Day Care Center has successfully operated as a group child care educational program since 1946.
Our staff reflects the cultural diversity of the children we serve.


The mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate environment where children can learn “hands-on” and at their own pace. We empower families and encourage them to participate and enhance their children’s educational journey.


The vision of our early childhood program is to work in partnership with families and the community to prepare our children for a future enhanced by education.


Our goals are to facilitate the pre-school growth of children; to foster school readiness focusing on children’s social and emotional development; to identify and support any social-emotional, physical, and cognitive needs at an early age.
