At Trinity Lutheran Freistadt Preschool, our mission statement is “A passion for learning, a heart for Christ.” We feel privileged to be able to come alongside families and work together as partners to provide high-level instruction, as well as build a solid faith foundation serving children the rest of their lives.
Trinity’s preschool is dedicated to educating the whole student in areas including social-emotional learning, character building, play-based learning, and academics. Our curriculum is designed to engage your child’s interests and ignite their passion for learning. There are opportunities throughout the day for students to make their own choices regarding play and time for interaction with others to foster important social skills. We strive to equip our students with fundamental building blocks in all domains of learning to prepare them to be children of good character, as well as exhibit academic excellence.
Relationships built in a Christ-centered environment between teacher and student are the foundation of providing children the opportunities and confidence they need to grow and progress in their learning. At this age, independence is an area of focus, providing students the opportunity to learn how to do things for themselves in the safe environment created in our classrooms. Above all, we strive to make disciples who make disciples. We prepare our students with the knowledge to share the Gospel, engage in faith-based conversations, encourage faith in action, and routinely incorporate prayer and fellowship through our classes, assemblies, and chapels.
Each day your child will be immersed in their learning of academic skills through cross-curricular themes and activities. Books, letters, and writing materials will be accessible to students during teacher-planned activities, as well as free-choice time. Development of fine motor skills will be addressed through cutting, centers, and art projects. Curiosity will be fostered through play, which is an essential piece to learning many of the future skills needed for success. The ability to work with others cooperatively is developed, along with understanding how to negotiate, compromise, and process small disappointments. Expressing needs to adults and ideas to peers can be challenging, so the practice provided to our students sets the stage for language expectations in Kindergarten.
Children are given the opportunity to explore and manipulate natural elements in the outdoors. Every day your child will experience the natural wonders of God’s creation in our outdoor Creator’s Classroom as well as the ability to explore other areas of our 40 acres. Here your child is given the freedom to explore, discover, and enhance their learning through nature. Independence and academic growth occur inside our classrooms, as well as outside with teacher-directed activities.
Trinity’s preschool program offers flexibility, by offering schedules based on the needs of individual families. We offer half-day and full-day learning options, allowing you to choose days that work best. In addition to the school day, we offer both before-school and after-school care.
During the school year, a hot school lunch with 1% white milk is available to school day children for a small fee per lunch or you may provide a nutritionally balanced cold lunch. Lunch can be paid through Skyward, using eFunds.
Thank you for partnering with us and choosing Trinity Preschool to be the start of your child’s educational career. It is such a blessing to be able to work alongside you to provide the best education possible to your child and family.
