Prekindergarten & Kindergarten:
Where joyful, child-centered learning teaches children the social, emotional, and academic skills they need for success.
The Pink House at Trinity is the home of our Prekindergarten and Kindergarten programs—and it is glorious! Children learn and play in a loving, child-centered atmosphere which also primes them to enter the first grade.
We believe that the development of social and emotional skills is the cornerstone of a successful school experience. That’s why we use the Responsive Classroom approach to help children build social, emotional, and academic readiness skills in a strong school community where they feel safe, challenged, and joyful.
Teaching occurs in large group, small group, and one-on-one situations accommodating a broad range of individual differences. Children are guided to grow in independence, kindness, patience, cooperation, self-control, and responsibility as they interact with others and their environment.
“Play is the foundation of all learning in the Preschool.”
The joyful experiences of children’s play are fundamental to the Trinity Preschool experience. We provide opportunities for a balance of structured and unstructured, child-directed and teacher-directed, and indoor and outdoor play. Play is viewed as crucial to the children’s development of self, of social relationships, self-control, persistence, and pleasure in the school experience. Play is the foundation of all learning in the Preschool.
Recognizing the importance of creating a bridge between the home and school environments for the Preschool child, we establish relationships with parents based on mutual trust, respect, and understanding. Parents are viewed as active participants in their child’s educational journey, and the school/family relationship is only strengthened by the many opportunities for parent engagement in both Preschool and school-wide events and initiatives.
We admit bright, curious children on a first come, first served basis, depending on the completion of the application process. All admission decisions are made in the best interest of each student. Once openings in each class have been filled, qualified applicants will be placed on a waiting list to be accepted as new openings occur.

Our Faculty & Staff
Teachers at the Pink House strive to foster a lifelong love of learning and curiosity from the youngest of ages. Every aspect of the curriculum is designed to help students become the ardent questioners, empathetic upstanders, and fluent communicators that they are meant to be—from thoughtfully designed classroom environments to individualized curricula to structured play, and everything in between.
Our teachers use large group, small group, and one-on-one sessions to accommodate the learning styles and preferences unique to each of our students.
