when i play,
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.

We play outside most days. Please dress your child for the weather. The gym is an alternative if weather is extreme.

Engaging group story time is provided every day. Children experience a wide variety of children’s literature from our over 2,000 titles library.
Music experiences may include singing, finger plays, instruments, creative movement and dance.
Children enjoy a healthy snack from the approved snack list after hand washing and table grace. Each child takes turns to bring snack for their whole class.
Dismissal A short ending circle reviews the day. We dismiss each child one by one from the circle.
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.
