Trinity offers preschool options for three- to five-year-olds. We offer half-day or full-day programs. When a child turns 3 or 4 (or are going to be 3 or 4 by December 1 of that school year), they are eligible to join a preschool classroom. Please keep in mind that children must be 5 by September 1 to enroll in Kindergarten. This may change the preschool program you choose for your child.
Staff - 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. Most classrooms also have an assistant(s). All staff are carefully screened and trained to provide excellence in education in a nurturing environment.
We use Creative Curriculum in all of our Preschool Classrooms. Our preschool provides a balance of child-directed play and teacher-directed learning activities each day. Preschool classrooms offer daily Jesus Time. We focus on a different Bible account each week that is appropriate for young children. We also offer daily songs, science, math, art, literacy and either daily or weekly gym and outdoor activities. Learning social skills through child-directed play time is supported and encouraged. The preschool curriculum is designed with long-range goals in mind and will contribute effectively to the child’s social, intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual development. We use the GOLD Assessment from Creative Curriculum and meet with you about your child’s progress. Although “play” is not listed as a “concept”, play is an important vehicle through which children learn.
