PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS

Special Program Activities

CHAPEL PROGRAM


Chapel is twice a week in the church.  Chapel story time encourages listening skills and emphasizes positive social values.  Chapel is led by our Priest or Religious Education Liaison.  It includes songs and value based stories from the Bible or nature.  Stories are told with visual aids and children are encouraged to interact and ask questions. Parents are always welcome to attend. 


 
 

​Trinity Preschool's specific approach is that of a Play-Based Educational Program in a Christian Environment.


Trinity Preschool works to supplement the meaningful family life of the child by providing them with regular association with others of the same age and maturity. This is done in a flexible environment planned and equipped especially for children under the thoughtful guidance of persons trained to promote their development. 


Children are encouraged to explore their environment and participate in both familiar and new activities. They have a balance of indoor and outdoor activities, vigorous play and quiet time, as well as cooperative and independent activities. 


The children follow developmentally appropriate structured daily schedules which include music and movement, large group and small group and free choice in the classroom. We offer a family style snack. Children serve themselves with help of a teacher guiding them. We offer many activities outside to broaden the children's imagination.


Overall, it is a goal of Trinity preschool to impact preschool education with hands on learning and fun.

THE CLIMBING TREE:

The climbing tree in the play yard predates Bev Gaston, our Director from 1972 to 2017, and has been immortalized both in a poem by a parent and a painting that hangs in the Trinity library.  When Bev first came, the tree was green and on the other side of the fence.

 About 15 years ago, the tree could not be saved but it was brought into the play yard so that it would remain a fixture of Trinity and provide the children another space to explore.
