Trinity Preschool

License #58-03-00748
Trinity Preschool is a private, not-for-profit, coeducational preschool licensed by the state of Florida for 31 children and operated as a ministry of the church to the families of our community.

We believe children learn about the world around them through play, a variety of hands-on activities, socializing with peers, and dramatic role-playing of life situations.  We also recognize that children thrive with structure - a structure established by daily routines of circle time, learning centers, arts and crafts, and outside play.  

Since 1996, the mission of Trinity Preschool has been to provide a small, high-quality, preschool program where each child is valued and nurtured. We are a gentle, caring place where children develop their wonder and curiosity as they learn to work and play with others.
