Our Preschool through Kindergarten program is an interactive, hands-on learning experience. Students transition between four classes throughout their day where they develop a foundation of letter and number recognition, science exploration, and Biblical principles.
The Language Arts program at Trinity Prep provides students with a strong foundation in reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.
Children will participate in daily writing and reading workshops, as well as skill lessons that are geared to their individual needs. This is a more traditional classroom in which students are engaged in conversation with their peers, while the teacher works to increase their vocabulary. The Language Arts classroom includes a variety of writing tools and props to enhance the student’s writing ability, introduces a variety of reading methods such as Phonics and Whole Language, and exposes children to a print-rich environment. Your child will surely gain a love for reading in the Language Arts classroom.
Direct Instruction, small group exploration, and learning centers are used in this classroom to develop age appropriate math skills, which includes understanding concepts and functions. Number recognition, counting, skip-counting, and emergent adding, subtracting, sorting and grouping are foundational math skills found throughout the curriculum of this classroom. Children in this classroom increase fine motor skills through the use of course related manipulatives.
Social Studies and Bible begin with building the self -esteem of the individual child as a unit member of the world at large. By understanding their importance to the family unit and the outside world they will be better prepared to become active citizens. As important, this classroom then connects this understanding to events, trend, ideas, and people in the United States and other cultures in the world. Some of the learning objectives for this classroom include:
- Identify and distinguish between various cultures
- Learn and study states and capitals
- Know the difference between natural and man-made resources
- Study and cook with different cultures
- Identify forms of communication
- Community Helpers
In Bible, students learn Bible verses and learn stories from the books of the Bible.
Our Science program is a hands-on, out of the box learning experience. Students are able to explore the world around them through real-life experience. Trinity houses many exotic animals and students are able to touch, observe, and learn about the various habitats in which they live. Our teachers use our campus to help engage students in learning about the world around us.
Students also explore the Scientific method through many observations. They learn to draw conclusions and collect data based on the things that they begin to observe. Students explore through their senses and develop an understanding of Science through a Biblical standpoint.
