Ages 2 years through 5 years
At Trinity Lutheran Preschool it is our goal to nurture children’s growth and development by providing a high quality program through developmentally appropriate practices. We strive to teach the whole child approach as we realize learning is done in many ways.
We understand and respect the need for self-directed play while preparing children for kindergarten, therefore, Trinity Lutheran Preschool promotes the “Handwriting Without Tears” program for writing and literacy experiences.
The staff have designed curriculum and materials to help children successfully master prekindergarten skills and meet developmental benchmarks which result in children being well prepared for kindergarten.
As a Lutheran preschool, we seek to nurture children and their families in the loving spirit of Jesus Christ. The basis of all our learning experiences is that Jesus is our Lord and friend. We praise Him and talk to Him in prayer. In this same spirit, we welcome all children and families, regardless of race, nationality, or creed.
In the classroom children hear Bible stories, sings songs of praise and pray every day. All classes attend the weekly chapel service with their teachers, peers and the students of Good Shepherd Lutheran School.
Safe, Secure & Nurturing Environment
Teachers give all children the care and respect they deserve during the time children are in their care. Whether it be a quick hug, verbal praise or a story on the lap of a teacher, care, respect and nurturing is part of each child’s day at Trinity!
In order to enter the campus there is a security gate which cannot be opened unless parents/families have a code. Emergency drills are conducted monthly and each child has an emergency kit on hand.
