WELCOME TO TRINITY PRESCHOOL!
We are proud of the wonderful traditions, education and care we have been providing children and their families for over 60 years. In 1957, Trinity Lutheran School was opened with one preschool class and a kindergarten class. Trinity was the first church in the area to open a preschool. In the following years, grades one through six were added. With the growth of the Parkway school system, the grade school was closed, and the preschool was expanded. Presently we have classes for children ages two through five. We are located at 14088 Clayton Road in Chesterfield at the intersection of Hwy 141 & Clayton Road.
Safety is our #1 concern. Therefore, Trinity Preschool strongly recommends (but does not require) that parents follow CDC and St. Louis County Health Department guidelines regarding proper face mask wearing for all children 2 years old and older while indoors or when around other individuals outside of their household.
Vaccination and Health Policy. Each child is required to have a physical examination upon entrance to school and must be FULLY IMMUNIZED in order to register. Children who have been sick should not return until they have been fever-free and symptom-free for 24 hours. Please note: We currently have additional protocols in place due to COVID-19.
Trinity Lutheran Preschool is an outreach ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church. The purpose of the preschool is to make Christ known to preschoolers and to provide a developmentally appropriate educational experience that recognizes the spiritual, mental, emotional, social and physical needs of each child. Our program includes a Christian curriculum as well as a play based approach to learning. We believe that preschool children learn best through exploration, play, and hands-on experiences.
HANDWRITING WITHOUT TEARS
Trinity incorporates the Handwriting Without Tears program into our curriculum. It is a very hands-on program with lots of music and movement activities to allow the children to have fun while writing and learn to write the letters the proper way for success later in school. You can check the program out at www.hwtears.com.
STREAM is an acronym for the integration of Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Math. Emphasizing STREAM in education encourages children to think logically, problem solve, and apply skills to equip students with the skills they need to compete in the 21st Century. STREAM concepts will be taught throughout the day integrated with the other activities going on in the classroom.
Once a month we join together as a school for Chapel to sing, hear a short devotional and pray. Parents and families are always welcome to join us for this monthly event.
The training children receive in the early years of their lives is some of the most significant they will ever receive. At Trinity Lutheran Preschool, we provide:
1. A Christ-centered curriculum where children will experience and hear daily of Jesus' love for them.
2. A safe, secure, and clean environment in which to explore.
3. A caring and nurturing atmosphere which fosters each child's creativity and positive self-image in order to develop an interest and joy in learning as well as a feeling of security and independence.
4. A balance of activities which include outdoor and indoor play, teacher-directed and child-initiated learning experiences within the context of a developmentally appropriate curriculum.
" My son comes home from school just plain happy. He is proud of his artwork; he talks of Jesus, friends, teachers, activities, and his excitement for another day. He is learning so much developmentally and academically that according to my son 'his head is now stronger than his neck.' I feel so comfortable with my child here at Trinity because I know he is loved wholeheartedly here everyday." - Fitz's Mom
“Trinity Lutheran Preschool has changed my life. Before attending Trinity, my son had never been away from me. He was clingy, didn’t know how to play with peers, and was shy. Mrs. Henderson and Mrs. Lester, from the two-year-old classroom, have been absolutely outstanding. They are patient and kind. They understand what Michael needs and how he learns best. Everyone at Trinity is wonderful. Upon pick up and drop off, my son is greeted by name by every staff member. I think that is super special and impressive, and it makes me feel very welcomed. I love Trinity and recommend it to all of my friends.” – Michael’s Mom
“Trinity Preschool has been the best preschool experience for my three children. Trinity has fostered a love for learning, curiosity, and faith in God that my children will have for the rest of their lives. Everyone at Trinity has been so wonderful and I am forever grateful that my children have had the opportunity to be part of such an amazing place.” - Gabriel’s Mom
“We came to Trinity Preschool because of their reputation in the community and Junior Kindergarten program - which is exceptional. From the first moment we walked in, Trinity felt like home. The atmosphere and curriculum was exactly what we imagined as our ideal preschool. Over the years, we have stayed at Trinity because of the amazing culture these educators have so tirelessly and lovingly cultivated. They are instilling faith, not only through their teaching, but much more importantly, through their actions. They walk like Christ, with love and compassion, seeing the best in each child. We feel so blessed to be a part of the Trinity family and will be forever grateful for the foundation they have given our boys.”
“The curriculum and lessons at Trinity Preschool helped both of our daughters be prepared and confident heading into elementary school. We feel like the experiences they've had at Trinity are a direct reason why our children love school and learning so much!” – Chelsea’s Mom
“The teachers are all so positive when they greet the kids in the morning! It creates a positive atmosphere to start the day! It’s really comforting to know that our children are being taught about Jesus at such a young age!” - William’s Mom
