Trinity Lutheran Preschool & Childcare

Trinity Lutheran Preschool & Childcare emphasizes learning social skills, how to take turns, to share, to stand in line, to sit quietly in circle time, to respect the teacher and other children, to behave respectfully in God's house, and especially that God loves us all the time.
We learn primarily through play, hands-on experiences, and many different media.
Learning also occurs from the staff's personal example and words of encouragement and love.
Trinity Lutheran Preschool provide Christian atmosphere in which children will become aware of the presence of Christ in their daily lives and to provide the opportunity for each child to learn about himself/herself and his/her abilities, and to develop self- respect and a positive self-image.
