Capacity/Student:Teacher Ratio

Trinity Christian Preschool currently has a daily capacity of 75 children.  Guidelines established in the Virginia code state the ratio of children to teacher will not exceed 10:1.  Our three-year old classes surpass this ration with only 8:1.

Student Qualifications

Children must be 3/4 years old by September 30th in order to enroll in the 3/4 year old class respectively.  Two and a half year children must turn 3 by March 30th.  All children attemding TCP must be completely toilet trained.  Pull ups and training pants will not be permitted (Flexibility is given for the 2.5 year old class but pull ups are required - no diapers).  If a student has more than one accident per week for 3 consecutive weeks, he/she will be removed from the preschool.  In this case, the parents will lose both the current month's tuition as well as the registration fee.  Children with special needs will be admitted on a case-by-case basis if it is determined that we can provide appropriate services.
