Looking for an emotionally supportive, intellectually stimulating environment for your child?
Look into applying to the Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Weekday School.
Since the mid-1950s, we have sponsored the Weekday School for young children who are taking that important first step into the outside world. Toward this end, the Weekday School maintains small classes so that each child may receive individual attention; devotes time to group endeavors and free play so that children may enjoy a relationship with their peers; introduces basic readiness skills without pressure so that children are prepared for formal school programs.
Finally, the school encourages close parent-teacher relationships and parental involvement in all aspects of the preschool experience so that children understand their parents’ interest in and support of life at school.
Class activities vary in groups and according to the seasons, but a general list includes art, crafts, music, sharing time, creative movements, nursery rhymes and poetry, movies, storytelling, and free play indoors and out. Readiness includes individual small group work in basic mathematics and reading skills.
The school day begins 9:00 a.m. and ends at noon, with an additional hour of supervised playtime for older preschool children from noon to 1 p.m.
In addition to the traditional school-year program, the preschool usually offers one week of camp in June, July, and August. The camps operate on the same schedule as the preschool.
