Welcome! A Message From The Director

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our website! It is with great pride that we announce that Trinity Preschool of Berwyn has been approved for renewal of our NAEYC accreditation through the year 2021!
This renewal reaffirms our commitment to high-quality early childhood education. A special thanks goes out to our amazing staff, the Board of Directors, and the entire parent community for your continuing support and involvement in your children's early education experience. NAEYC Accreditation of programs for young children represents the mark of quality in early childhood education.

We started this school year feeling refreshed and excited about what is happening in our preschool community:

~ Our building was updated last summer with freshly painted classrooms and a totally renovated children’s bathroom.

~ Our Outdoor Classroom/Nature Discovery Center has been enhanced with a cascading water table and a worm compost factory.

~ New display boards were installed in the hallway to highlight the children’s artwork.

Trinity’s teaching staff continues to participate in professional development activities that deepen their knowledge and understanding of children’s development, and program design that is based on the latest in early childhood research. Staff learning opportunities include:

~ Four staff members attended the national conference of the National Association for the Education of Young Children in November 2015.

~ All staff have been trained in child CPR and first aid.

~ Through the renewal process for NAEYC, staff are continually refreshing and updating their professional knowledge and skills.

As a NAEYC-accredited program, Trinity Preschool continues to meet and exceed over 300 criteria established as the “gold standard” in early childhood education. Come visit us and see the best of early childhood education practice in action!

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website. The site is full of useful information about our school, important dates, and photos that help to tell our program’s story. We take pride in our program, and we are happy to answer questions or have you come for a visit!

There is a growing movement
in early childhood education to integrate learning about nature
in the outdoor setting.

Thanks to the generosity and passion of Christa and Calvin W. Schmidt, Trinity Preschool opened the Nature Discovery Center with a ribbon cutting on Friday, May 3, 2013.

Each class meets with Nature Explorer’s Teacher once per week to interact with natural materials, learn about the joys of nature, and spend time in a relaxed space designed to encourage exploration and discovery.

“It is good to realize that if
love and peace can prevail
on earth, and if we can
teach our children to honour nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be
here forever.”
~ Jimmy Carter
