Toddlers

Our toddler classroom serves children from two to three years old. 

Our toddler classroom environment is language rich, immersing students in vocabulary building and articulation. 

This classroom is marked by messy, creative hands on projects and in play.

These early years are crucial in developing a healthy self-awareness and beginning awareness of others. Lessons in safety and personal care routines are also a focus of this group.

Students are given ample room to experiment with cause and effect, problem solve, improve memory skills, and build curiosity. 

The ability to maintain attention, focus on and complete tasks also begins at this early age through group learning experiences and extended conversation and play.

This class also receives much assistance in potty training.

Preschool

The preschool classroom holds children from age three to four years old.

Our preschool class is often buzzing with the sounds of joyful and excited students who are discovering friendship and soaking up the world around them with intense enthusiasm.  

Students are prepared to enter pre-kindergarten, which means that morning group time will be extended and their attention maintenance will be challenged. 

These students engage in many opportunities for hands-on learning in areas of math, science and literacy. 

The classroom environment is created to meet the preschooler’s need for stimulation, to fuel their natural inquisitiveness, and encourage social engagement. 

Students are challenged to build on their independence, gain confidence and grow their cognitive skills. 

Students at this level begin to hear letter sounds, form the letters of their name, and increase their fine motor development.

Pre-Kindergarten

The Trinity Preschool Pre-Kindergarten classroom is for children ages four through five years old. 

Our desire is to create a structured learning environment that is stimulating and engaging for our students who will be heading off to kindergarten.

For Pre-K students, group time begins to look more like a classical classroom – it consists of the calendar, looking at the days of the week, months of the year, counting, and patterning concepts. This time also includes a daily story, opportunities to share and develop leadership skills, as well as learning about a new concept or theme, and the letter of the week. 

Students engage in a pre-literacy activities often as their classroom environment is rich in literacy and materials that stimulate problem solving skills and knowledge in math, science, and engineering. 

Themed concepts, based on the children’s interests, are used to stimulate their energy and desire for learning. Our Pre-Kindergarten teachers use this excitement to incorporate learning from all developmental areas ensuring that students receive a well-balanced, structured, and stimulating education that readies them for the elementary years and beyond.

Transitional Kindergarten

Our TK class is for students who are 4.5 to 5 years old that do not make the kindergarten birthday cut off. This is also a great class for students who still have some areas of growth needed prior to heading into traditional Kindergarten.

TK students will work in a classroom that is set up very similar to a kinder classroom.

Students will learn concepts that are the stepping stones to higher level thinking.

Growth in leadership and confidence is shown in group projects and speaking in front of the class.

Curriculum is based on the children’s interests so that their love of learning can continue to grow.

Throughout the day and week children will take time to focus on each of the core subjects: math, literacy, and science with projects on history and art throughout.

Kindergarten

For a child to be in a Kindergarten class they need to be 5 years old by September 1st.

Our kindergarten teachers all have extensive teaching experience so that we can be sure to hit the same standards as your public or private kinder program.

Students will begin to learn sentence structure and story arcs, as well as how to recall information from texts.

We continue to teach comparison of quantities slowly allowing students to use numbers rather than counters.

Teachers will develop creativity in new art forms using tools to create or recreate famous works of art.

The beginnings of science and biology will be taught in order for children to begin exploring chemistry and biological processes for natural growth, as well as health and safety.

Kindergarten students will also partake in physical education classes throughout the week.
