In the process, students learn the valuable skills of teamwork and problem solving, and becoming independent and curious learners. The curriculum includes instructional time in language arts, math, science, social studies, Bible, Spanish, music, art physical education, reading time with the librarian, and a weekly chapel.
Above all else, Trinity provides a strong Christian foundation through every aspect of the Pre-K and Kindergarten curriculum. Daily instruction encourages children to love, respect, and to show kindness to one another. Our goal is to plant a seed of truth and love for the Lord and His creation.
CLASS STRUCTURE AND REQUIREMENTS
Trinity offers three or five full day Pre-K options. Students entering Pre-K must be four years old by September 1 to apply. The Pre-K program runs from 8:00 AM to 2:45 PM. Students applying for Kindergarten must be five years old by September 1 to qualify for enrollment.
Early Education Commitment to Compliance
Trinity’s Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs are exempt from many of the state reporting regulations, because they are part of its accredited Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 program. TCA is committed to ongoing monitoring and complying with necessary state regulations for early education.
