General School Mission

"Trinity Church Preschool program will provide a quality Christian environment for preschool children to learn and grow, as a service to the church and community.
Preschool is the first exposure of your child to formal education. The program's primary objective is to encourage and support the development of the child by providing opportunities for self-exploration and discovery within a Christian environment. Our program seeks to understand the needs of each child and to prepare them for later school experience.
A creative preschool program promotes development of the child both as an individual personality and as a member of a social group. The child discovers the joy of working out ideas, which is the basis for independent thinking. Your child will learn to respect the ideas and abilities of others, which is essential in a democratic society. A child is always learning and developing, for play is the work of young children. A child naturally learns through play experiences. Each child learns only that for which he/she is developmentally ready.
A variety of special programs are also planned for the children, and family involvement is encouraged for these and the regular functions of Trinity Church, as well.
