Cultivating a lifelong love of learning since 1958
Trinity Preschool offers children a unique environment to learn how to do things for themselves and successfully interact with other people. The play-based curriculum is designed to achieve not only kindergarten readiness, but to prepare children for a lifetime of success in all their endeavors, by teaching them self-control, problem solving and how to interact respectfully with other people.
The Power of Play
In our play-centered preschool curriculum, teachers leverage children’s developing ideas, interests, and competencies to promote learning through play, circle-time, and small-group activities. Play is not a break from the curriculum; play is the best way to implement the curriculum. Teachers facilitate through responsive interactions with children, based on an understanding of how play contributes to academic and social learning.
In each of our classes, we encourage free play as the main element of the curriculum. Play may be child-initiated or teacher-directed. Both independent and assisted activities are available and experience centers are set up to introduce new concepts and challenges that encourage children to explore the limits of their imagination. Children are supervised, but encouraged to follow their own interests. The daily routine includes snack time, circle time and opportunities for outdoor play.
