Trinity Lutheran Preschool's philosophy in working with young children is based on the core values listed in the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Whereas parents provide the primary influence in the development of the child, the Christian teacher as a role model, witness, and servant also seeks to meet the needs of each child. The teacher adapts curriculum, teaching methods and structure so that the needs of the developmental whole child are met – physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally, aesthetically, as well as spiritually.
Trinity offers children eligible for kindergarten within the next two years, class to prepare them for kindergarten. Preschool is taught at Trinity Lutheran Church as one class for 3, 4 and 5 year-old children, which runs Monday through Thursday from 8:15am-11:45am.
