Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Trinity Day School we provide a supportive environment in which children and parents feel free to share, trust and explore life's experiences. Continuing emotional, social, spiritual, physical and intellectual growth of children and parents is the objective of our school philosophy.
First we want our children to become secure within themselves; to know that they are valued and important beings who are deserving of respect, acceptance and understanding. To help accomplish this, we need to provide an atmosphere where trust and confidence can grow, where children can feel secure, comfortable and happy. Only in this type of atmosphere can a child's development be enhanced and his/her potential become a reality.
Socialization skills are the skills which enable us to maintain healthy relationships, provide positive self-image, and increase the ability to achieve both socially and academically. These are skills which we will endeavor to help each child achieve by designing curriculum with an understanding of where children are emotionally and cognitively at the beginning of the year, and where they need to grow throughout the year.
To implement our curriculum, trained, mature early childhood professionals possess an extensive knowledge of child development and demonstrate skills which facilitate learning and growth in all domains.
We will provide a variety of experiences for your child to explore his world and continue to be a curious learner. Developmental activities which are age appropriate and child-centered are emphasized. We foster independence and self-esteem and encourage each child to respect their peers and teachers while learning the skills necessary to resolve conflicts. There is much freedom to develop as a unique individual while always providing limits which consider our students' safety and provide the security of a structured routine.
