**Important Announcement 6/19/2020***
June 19, 2020
Dear Holy Trinity Preschool Families,
With a heavy heart I write to inform you that the Holy Trinity Weekday Schools Board has voted to suspend our Preschool program for the 2020-2021 academic year. After careful consideration of the CDC and PA State guidelines to reopen safely, we did not feel we could meet the high expectations Holy Trinity Preschool has delivered for the past 50 years.
Preschool is hands on, social based learning environment. Children of preschool age would find it challenging to sit at a table for 2+ hours with limited access to our various interactive curriculum and play things. These children are just learning about autonomy, personal space, and how to play together, the building blocks of a strong preschool program. In addition to challenges inside the classroom, outdoor play and learning will also be impacted by the new protocols we would have to enforce, further lessening a fulfilling preschool experience. Gross motor is essential for development and outside time would be difficult.
Please allow us time to process the refund of any deposits that have already been made. Although we have spent many hours examining the scenarios of what the 2020-21 school year may look like, the
realization that suspending our preschool for this year brings new challenges that will take time to successfully navigate.
Thank you for your support and understanding. On behalf of the HTWS board and myself, I wish health and happiness to you and your family.
Chair, HTWS Board
We look forward to welcoming you back in September 2021
Our Curriculum and Programs:
Holy Trinity Preschool: Holy Trinity Preschool provides preschool readiness programs designed to achieve goals of social, emotional, and academic growth in a Christian nurturing environment to help prepare our preschoolers for a successful kindergarten experience. We meet our objectives through music, art, daily structured lessons, fine and gross motor activities, and creative "free choice" activities such as easel painting, play-dough, cutting and pasting, block building, library time and imaginative play. We utilize low teacher-child ratios (1:6 in our 3’s and 1:8 in our 4/5's & K-Club), to allow our dedicated teachers to reach the needs of every child.
Holy Trinity Preschool offers a variety of 2, 3, and 5 day programs that serve children ages 2 1/2 - 5 years. Preschool classes are from 9:00 am - 11:30 am. Extended Care is available in both the morning and afternoon.
