Early Care and Afterschool Programs

Early Care for Grades TK–6 • 7:45–8:15 a.m.

Trinity’s Early Care program is a free program designed for children in grades TK–6 who carpool with Middle and Upper School students. It seeks to provide a safe and supervised spot for students before school begins.

Early Care is also available for working families who need an earlier drop-off time for their children. Available daily from 7:45–8:15 a.m., the program has two locations. Grades TK–3 meet in the front modular, in the Trinity Neighborhood classrooms. Grades 4–6 meet in the Blue Gym. A Trinity staff member escorts the students to the Lower School Building at 8:15 a.m. each morning.

After-School Programs

Trinity offers after-school programs for students in grades TK–8. The programs are divided by grade, with TK–6 served by our Trinity Neighborhood program and grades 7 and 8 served by the Trinity Lions on Campus program. All opportunities are designed to assist parents whose work schedules do not allow them to regularly pick up their children at dismissal time.


After-School for Grades TK–6:
Trinity Neighborhood (1:00–5:30 p.m.)

Trinity Neighborhood reinforces Trinity’s Christian mission, and it honors our commitment to unhurried education, leaving children lots of time for unstructured play and opportunities to extend their learning informally after school. Students who are engaged in clubs and other activities after school are able to go to and from the Neighborhood. Located in the back of the first modular building, the program serves Trinity students in grades TK–6 and includes snack time, supervised unstructured play, homework time, and a wonderfully unhurried experience with books, toys, games, crafts, and more.

Trinity Neighborhood is open on full and regular school days. It is not open on early dismissal days. For more information about Trinity Neighborhood, please contact Mary Hampton at mhampton@tsdch.org.
