Purpose

Originally established in 1947, Trinity Preschool and Parents’ Morning Out is one of the older preschools in the Richmond area. Trinity Preschool/PMO is a comprehensive weekday program for children between the ages of 1 and 5 years old. It is a developmental program offered in a loving and nurturing environment to help children grow mentally, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.

Trinity Preschool/PMO is an outreach ministry of Trinity United Methodist Church and admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.

Philosophy

At Trinity Preschool and Parents’ Morning Out, we believe children learn and grow through play. As a play-based program, we are focused on the child’s natural curiosity, creativity, and desire to learn. We offer a variety of activities such as exploring nature, music, movement, cooking, art, and age appropriate instruction so that each child can reach his or her potential.

In a world that is moving faster each day, our children are able to slow down and grow at their own pace. We teach practical life skills and encourage independence. Trinity Preschool/PMO strives to foster an environment where each child can experience love, confidence, and success. We want our children to have a strong foundation so that they will always have a life-long love for learning.

 

“Every day should be a good day for a child!”
