when i play,

i learn.

Children learn best by playing and following their own curiosities, by solving real problems such as how to balance a stack of blocks, or how to negotiate a zipper, put together a picture puzzle, and most of all, by making mistakes and trying again. Children need time to grow, to learn, and to develop. This happens largely through play.

The outdoor playground at Trinity was designed specifically for us to connect children to nature and to develop foundational skills important in early learning. Our playground includes a variety of loose parts which are necessary for high-quality play experiences. They allow children the freedom to be creative, curious and imaginative.
