Our Purpose

Trinity Community Preschool Exists: 

  • To provide a nurturing, faith-based community of joyful learning in which young children can grow in all areas of development.
  • To provide opportunities for young children to gain knowledge and understanding about God, His love and His work through people and the world around us.
  • To foster the development of competent and confident learners
  • To provide support that compliments and strengthens positive parental roles.
  • To instill in young children a strong sense of belonging, trust, autonomy and initiative as the developmental foundation for school readiness and future success.
At Trinity Community Preschool your child will be well loved by our staff!  Our teachers want to be here and are warm, nurturing and responsive. We believe trusting relationships with caring adults are necessary to help children grow in key areas of development including; empathy, cooperation, self-regulation, socialization, language, communication, peer relationships, and identity formation.
