Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Trinity Lutheran Church Preschool and Kindergarten is dedicated to providing the families of our community with a quality school and extended care program in a joyful, loving environment. Our purpose is to help build a strong spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social framework of reference for living and to create a foundation for later, more formal education. Most importantly, we feel that each child needs to feel good about themselves and know that God loves them. Their view of themselves and others dictates how they react to experiences that life presents to them."
