About Our Campus
The Calvary Chapel Lake Arrowhead Preschool is located on the grounds of the Calvary Chapel Lake Arrowhead Church. The preschool is housed in a separate building designated for children who are between 24 months through five years of age. The hours of operation are 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are a year round school. The main office telephone number is (909) 337-2468 ext. 14; the fax number is (909) 337-9656, and website is www.cclaca.com.
The Calvary Chapel Lake Arrowhead Pre-School has two classrooms. Both classrooms are spacious and designed to accommodate up to 38 children combined. For this reason, the program offers a morning and afternoon session to meet the needs of as many children as possible. The classrooms are equipped with a variety of furniture and manipulatives that provide opportunity to enhance your child’s development and provide a means for completing daily activities.
The two classrooms are utilized to separate our age groups so that the curriculum can be as developmentally appropriate as possible. The 2’s and 3’s are in Classroom A, while our 4’s and 5’s are in Classroom B. Classroom A is located on the bottom floor of the main church office building. Classroom B is located on the bottom level of the classrooms adjacent to the lower parking lot. We will be separating our children into these two classrooms by age whenever possible. However, we reserve the right to combine classrooms whenever situations and ratios warrant.
The classroom operates on a daily schedule that will remain routine with consistent times for activities such as: Circle Time, Snack Time, Activity Time, Free Play, Outside Play, Lunch Time and Nap Time. These times are designed to be consistent to provide your child sense of security and expectation during their school days. The daily schedule will be posted near the sign-in book of the classroom. Additionally, the teacher will post a weekly lesson plan that outlines the daily curriculum and learning activities.
Out-Door Play Area
Two fenced outdoor play areas are located on our campus. The first is located about 30 yards north of the classroom. Children will be escorted by teachers to the playground and supervised at all times. The area is covered in wood chips and equipped with climbing equipment, swings and slides to facilitate the development of children’s motor skills. The playground also provides an area shaded by trees for children to utilize for resting or playing under during warm days.
Our second playground is a natural play space that constitutes our outdoor classroom. We use this area to support the children’s development through the use of natural resources. We have a gardening area, a mud kitchen, a water wall and many other exciting resources for our children to explore.
Other Programs On Campus
Also, on the grounds of Calvary Chapel Lake Arrowhead is The R.O.C.K. Child Care Program. This center is partnered with Calvary Chapel Preschool. The R.O.C.K. cares for children ages 5 to 13. The rock is open before and after school, and full time on holiday breaks and during summer.
Since the R.O.C.K. program and the preschool are partners the two programs come together for two hours each day. The children at the R.O.C.K. and the children at the preschool are cared for together from 6am to 7am and from 5pm to 6pm. This provides our children with the rich experience of being able to interact with children of various ages and promotes healthy social development.
