The Fives Program is a unique setting for children who are chronologically eligible for Kindergarten, yet developmentally not quite ready to participate in an elementary school setting. The Fives Program places an emphasis on supporting the development of a positive self-esteem, recognizing the growing sophistication of social skills, and stimulating the progression of emergent literacy.

PHILOSOPHY OF ALL PROGRAMS:
Trinity Preschool provides a safe, nurturing environment that promotes physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of young children while responding to the needs of families. We recognize the importance of applying knowledge of child development to program practices, while respecting and responding to the uniqueness of each child. We strive to insure that all programs follow the NAEYC guidelines for developmentally appropriate practices.
The curriculum at Trinity Preschool presents an integrated, process-oriented, thematic approach with the emphasis on children’s literature. Within an integrated model, children are provided valuable learning opportunities through learning centers in the classroom as well as outdoor experiences. Classroom learning centers may include: Library, Blocks, Art, Writing, Math & Science, Puzzles & Manipulatives and a Sensory Table. The curriculum represents process, rather than product; for example, when examing materials in the Science area, investigating and describing how the leaf looks, feels, and smells is far more important than labeling what the leaf actually is. Teachers plan activities in the learning centers with a focus on the theme, so that the experiences and learning in one area reinforce and support learning in another area; this is identified as a Thematic Approach. The emphasis on Children’s Literature in the curriculum at Trinity Preschool acknowledges the importance of books in the lives of children and the role of reading aloud to children in literacy development.
At Trinity Preschool we encourage children to be thinkers and learners by supporting children in their curiosity, discovery and joy in the process of learning about the world around them.
