We are pleased to announce that TVS will offer a preschool class for four year old children this coming fall. We are in the process of planning every aspect of this new program, and are offering two information sessions for interested parents (see below).
Trinity Valley School Pre-K curriculum will feature the traditional elements of early literacy and numeracy skills, as well as a teaching philosophy inspired by Reggio (classroom environment and materials), Waldorf (handmade, natural materials, rhythms and rituals of young children), Responsive Classroom (teacher language, parent contact, classroom community building), and best practices as guided by national standards in curriculum content areas.
The program will be for students who turn four before September 1 of 2019. Entrance will be determined by developmentally age-appropriate evaluation conducted in January 2019. Based on the evaluation, we anticipate that students who enroll in the four-year-old program will be ready for TVS Kindergarten for the Fall of 2020.
The Pre-K school day will be the same as our kindergarten schedule (8:15-2:45), with aftercare available from 2:45-6:00.
The class will have a lead teacher and assistant teacher. Pre-K students will enjoy the study of foreign language, hands-on science, physical education, art, music, and brain breaks (recess). The class will utilize the TVS campus as needed and developmentally appropriate.
Full year tuition will be $12,000. This includes supplies and curriculum materials. Financial aid will not be available for Pre-K.
For more information, you are encouraged to attend one of our Info Sessions, to be held in the Great Hall of the Lower School. Please arrive at the Dutch Branch entrance and park in visitor parking.
