Trinity UMC Preschool LICENSE #C01OK0068

Our program at Trinity United Methodist Preschool is based on the characteristics, needs and abilities of the young child. Our objectives center around guiding the development of the whole child; socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and spiritually, while considering each child as unique and important. Our program is designed to provide a stimulating learning experience within a Christian environment. The teaching methods we use relate to the belief that the most meaningful learning experiences involve children in discovering, doing, and creating.

Our program utilizes a curriculum whose philosophy promotes appropriate early childhood "hands-on" experiences that incorporate:

Language Arts

Motor Skills


Health and Safety

Creative Arts

Dramatic Play


Field Trips

Mathematical Concepts

Trinity United Methodist Preschool does not discriminate again race, age, sex, creed, or national origin.
