About the Program
Children enrolled at the Trinity Preschool have an active and stimulating program that concentrates on learning by doing and having lots of fun!
Our goal is to have each child emotionally, socially and academically prepared to excel in kindergarten and beyond!
The program has two classrooms: one for 3 year olds and one for 4 year olds. However, at the beginning and end of each semester, teachers assess each child’s social and emotional development and academic proficiency. Based on those results, a child may be placed in either classroom, at the teacher’s discretion, depending on the assessment of the child’s ability rather than solely determining placement on numerical age. This practice helps children from becoming overwhelmed by their peers and their environment.
Through daily classroom activity, our teacher’s strive to maintain a BALANCE between:
- Child-directed & teacher directed activity
- Structure & flexibility
- Group needs & individual needs
- Program goals & children’s interests
- Security & risk-taking
- Familiarity & challenge
- Daily activities include:
- Creative Arts
- Dramatic Play
- Sensory Play
- Music & Movement
- Outdoor Play (weather permitting)
- Adventure Trips
