At Trinity, all of our programs are licensed and fully accredited and earned a National Exemplary status. We offer two programs for two year old children -- a full day program in our childcare and a half-day program. The class size for both two year old programs is no larger than 12 with a teacher and two assistants (1:4). Children are assigned a primary caregiver to ensure personal attention and nurture for each child.
All of our staff are committed Christian people with a heart for children. Each classroom has a lead teacher with a degree in Early Childhood Education. All staff are carefully screened and trained to provide excellence in education in a nurturing environment. We provide a 1:4 teacher/child ratio in all of our 2 year old programs.
We use Bible-based curriculum. Each week we focus on a faith-based theme and use a supporting Bible story. Faith concepts are incorporated into other areas, e.g. science, dramatic play, large motor activities, music, language arts, etc. Although "play" is not listed as a "concept," play is an important vehicle through which children learn. Daily schedules and lesson plans are posted outside each classroom. The themes and other activities are developmentally appropriate for two year old children.
Transition Room (2-year-old classroom – full day)
At about age 2, children join the Transition room. This is a year round program. We are closed only on the major holidays.
Two year old Children are transitioning from infancy to preschool. This classroom takes on the look of a beginning preschool classroom and the day is structured to include child-directed and teacher-directed activities while still providing the personal relationships of a primary caregiver. Daily experiences include Jesus time, songs, literacy, science, art and math activities and rest time. A special emphasis is put on encouraging children to use the toilet. Children may remain in the Transition classroom until they are 3 and toilet trained. Snacks and lunch are included.
