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)
 
Trinity’s Early Childhood program values the emotional well-being of our students and shares God’s love through daily “Jesus Time” and weekly Chapel services. Trinity’s Early Childhood students experience a variety of activities that set them on a path for future academic success.
 
  • Thematic units that cover language development, reading readiness, phonemic awareness, and various math skills (counting, sorting, etc.)
  • Spanish curriculum taught to all early childhood students
  • Activities that assist with fine motor and gross motor skill development
  • Playtime on our outdoor Early Childhood playground and indoor gym available to students each day for physical activity
  • Peer interaction and social skill development
  • Morning and afternoon snack time
  • Afternoon rest time
  • 10:1 student-to-teacher ratio in Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten
  • 8:1 student-to-teacher ratio in Two-Year-Old Town
  • Morning and afternoon extended care included in tuition
  • Hour and fifteen minuted drop-off window in the mornings
  • Seven pick-up options for preschool and pre-kindergarten students in the afternoon

 

In January 2020, a part-time two-year-old program was introduced at Trinity Lutheran School. Since that time, it has grown in numbers and popularity, so much that we already have students enrolled for fall 2021! Our Two-Year-Old Town students experience peer interaction and socialization, creative play, and both indoor and outdoor gross motor and fine motor skill activities. They enjoy snack time, music and art, and are encouraged in their potty training process. Two-Year-Old Town is a joyful room of happy, energetic toddlers who love learning, especially about Jesus!
