At Trinity Christian Preschool,
students become life-long learners.
We adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Virginia Foundation Blocks for Early Learning for Literacy and Mathematics. We focus on monthly thematic units, basic math concepts, alphabet exposure and exploration, and nursery rhymes. We are in the process of aligning our curriculum with some of the same concepts taught at Poquoson Primary School so that students will have an easy transition when entering Kindergarten.
We utilize the Bright Beginnings curriculum to teach monthly Bible units, to encourage spiritual growth, and to demonstrate Christian values. Our Pastor will work with the students on a weekly basis as she introduces the Bible lesson during chapel time and teachers will incorporate it in their classrooms each week.
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. This is also another aspect of our curriculum that aligns with the standards used at PPS, therefore setting your child up to enter Kindergarten with many of the same picture and sounds cards they will see there.
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 aims to focus on the positive decisions and behaviors and is modeled after the concept of "Bucket Filling", which is also used in the public school. Visit the following website for more information and even ideas of how to incorpoate this at home with your family!
Students bring a lunch each day to eat in the classroom. Children play outdoors on our playground daily, weather permitting; if the weather prevents outdoor play, we utilize the church gym for gross motor activities.
