We’re reaching out to provide one of the most highly respected preschools in the northern suburbs. Trinity Church Nursery School is a non-denominational preschool dedicated to the belief that each child is a precious individual with a unique pattern of development. We feel that building a child’s self esteem is crucial to the learning process. Self-esteem is enhanced when a child experiences pleasure in seeking, doing, and achieving. Through carefully planned activities we encourage children to stretch their imaginations and abilities and to try the untried. We want children to enjoy themselves, to gain a sense of independence, and to feel secure and happy as they interact with others and develop friendships. Our teachers offer support, guidance, and a nurturing environment. We are committed to do whatever is necessary to ensure that each child thrives and feels capable and loved. Our mission is to provide a safe and stimulating environment in which children may play, learn, grow, and flourish in body, mind and spirit.
