Trinity Lutheran Preschool recognizes that a preschool experience is often the child's first step into the world beyond family. Our goal at Trinity is to provide families of the community, church and school with a safe, educational Christ-centered early childhood experience. The early childhood program is designed to meet the developmental needs of children 2 years to 5 years of age. At Trinity we provide daily experiences that enrich and foster each child's spiritual, cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Each day children have the opportunity to explore their creative side, develop problem solving skills and strengthen personal interaction skills through hands on experiences. We strive to assist parents in nurturing their children in the faith, while recognizing that the parents are the primary educators of their children. Below are a list of the classes we offer:
