At Trinity Christian Preschool,
students become life-long learners.
The Creative Curriculum is the foundation of our program. It is based on developmentally appropriate practice addressing the six content areas of literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology. Objectives are established for fifty skills in the Social/Emotional, Physical, Cognitive, and Language developmental areas. Weekly themes are designed to meet these goals. We adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Virginia Foundation Blocks for Early Learning for Literacy and Mathematics.
We also utilize the Bright Beginnings curriculum to teach monthly Bible units, to encourage spiritual growth, and to demonstrate Christian values.
Our curriculum encompasses all prerequisites necessary for success in the public school’s kindergarten and introduces phonetics with the use of the Wilson Fundations Sound Cards.
We utilize the NAEYC recommended curriclum, "Handwriting Without Tears", to teach our children prewriting skills and letter formation. This developmentally based program is an effective way to introduce the handwriting skills needed for kindergarten. Our guidance policy is modeled after the 1-2-3 Magic discipline plan which is also used in the public school.
Families provide snack for their child's class for one week in the fall, winter and spring with a list of suggestions provided in the class "snack sack." Children play outdoors on our playground daily, weather permitted; if the weather prevents outdoor play we utilize the church gym for gross motor activities.
Our Four-year old students learn about stranger-danger with The Safe Side Curriculum. To learn more about this wonderful program check out their website at: http://www.thesafeside.com/
We have updated and improved our snack policy to help our families provide healthy options for the growing bodies of our precious students.
