Early Care and Afterschool Programs
Early Care and After-School Programs
Trinity’s Early Care and After-School Programs seek to provide each student with a safe, fun, and engaging environment where students can play, make friends, and try new things. Early Care is available for Lower School students with a sibling in Middle or Upper School and families with working parents. Doors are unlocked at 7:45 a.m. for Early Care in the gym (Grades 4–6) and in the modular building (Grades TK-3). Activities include sports, playground fun, crafts, board games, Legos, homework club, and so much more!
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 NeighborhoodTrinity 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. Priority is given to families who can utilize the program for five days per week, but drop-in days are available. Admission is granted to Trinity families on a first-come, first-served basis. Trinity Neighborhood is open on regular school days, and on some early dismissal days (for an extra fee). For more information about Trinity Neighborhood, please contact Mary Hampton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost for Trinity Neighborhood depends upon the session and the days of attendance selected. You may enroll your student for one to five days of attendance per week (for example, every Wednesday, or Mondays and Thursdays, or Mondays through Fridays). Days of attendance can be changed effective January 1, 2019, if your family’s needs change.
The Business Office will bill your Trinity account for the annual cost for Trinity Neighborhood based on the session and days of attendance you select. If you change your student’s session or days of attendance for the second semester, an adjustment will be made to your Trinity account to reflect this change. These bills are paid via your Veracross account.
