Our program uses a thematic curriculum, which enables the children to learn through play. Each age group is provided with age appropriate materials and projects; it’s fun with a function!
The Trinity experience begins at 3 months old! Here our babies receive all the love and care necessary for a successful transition from home to school. The ratio of infants to adults is 3:1. Our infant program is a ½ day program with each day ending at 1:00 pm. 2, 3 or 5-day options are available for your convenience.
Movement, exploration, enthusiasm…that’s the toddlers at Trinity! Fun times can be had in the classroom and on the playground. The ratio of toddlers to adults is 5:1. Our toddler program is a ½ day program with each day ending at 1:00 p.m. 2-day, 3-day, or 5-day options are available for your convenience.
The focus shifts to the child’s social environment and interactions with one another in the two-year-old classes. Many new experiences occur with art and activity. The ratio of children to adults is 9:1 with an aide shared by both two-year-old classes. The two-year-old classes have both ½ and full day options as well as attending 3 days per week or 5 days per week
Continuing to build on the earlier skills, the three-year-old classes provide opportunities for fine motor skills, name and letter recognition and working together as a group. The ratio of children to adults is 10:1 with an aide shared by both three-year-old classes. The three-year-old classes have both ½ and full day options as well as attending 3 days per week or 5 days per week.
This is a pivotal year in the life of your preschooler! All of the skills and foundations come together, and the main focus of this class is to prepare your child for Kindergarten! Lots of time for fun and friendship! The ratio of children to adults is 20:2. Your pre-kindergarten options include both ½ day and full day options. We are a VPK (Voluntary Prekindergarten) provider for the state of Florida; to receive the discounted tuition, you must register with the Early Learning Coalition.
