Trinity Baptist Preschool – Teacher
Trinity Baptist Preschool has been in operation for over 18 years and has nurtured hundreds of preschool children. The preschool works on the belief that each child is unique and should be encouraged to further his/her social and intellectual abilities at his/her own rate of development. This is accomplished by means of a combination of self-directed and teacher-directed learning experiences. Children will be guided toward self-awareness, self-discipline, self-choice, and a sense of personal responsibility. We are committed to providing an environment in which each child may develop spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, intellectually and creatively.
