EARLY CHILDHOOD

Trinity’s Early Childhood Program provides a Christ-centered learning environment in which children ages 2 through 5 hear the Good News of Jesus and grow spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically. We provide a nurturing atmosphere where children learn through play and other activities.

Our Early Childhood program includes:

  • Part-Time Two-Year-Old Program (Monday-Friday mornings)
  • Part-Time and Full-Time Preschool (3-4 years)
  • Part-Time and Full-Time Pre-Kindergarten (4-5 years)

Celebrating Variety in Learning Styles

At Trinity Lutheran School, we value the uniqueness of each of our students and understand the importance of variety in teaching methods and approach. Our education inclusion strategy celebrates differences in learning styles and promotes a stronger sense of community in the classroom.

Igniting a Life-Long Love Learning

We acknowledge that students are motivated learners when the subject coincides with their natural interests. By supplementing standard curriculum with creative and innovative topics - through our music, outdoor ed, and elective programs - we seek to ignite a life-long love of learning in our students.

Clearing the Obstacles of Learning

We are dedicated to addressing the emotional and spiritual health of our students, through a variety of methods, including implementation of Christian conflict resolution curriculum, faculty training guided by licensed counselors, visits from Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry, and most importantly, regular classroom prayer time focusing on God's promises for our lives.
