Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Preschool
Children LEARN more where they LEARN to LOVE LEARNING...
Since its inception in 2000, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Preschool has provided distinctive early childhood education with child-centered, developmentally appropriate learning activities. Our Christian based half day preschool program enrolls children of diverse racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds. We are certified through the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. The hours of operations are Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 1:00pm with extended hours available. The school is housed in the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church facility, located in a private residential area near Lead Mine Road in Raleigh. In addition to a small enrollment, the children enjoy the benefits of comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped classrooms with low student-teacher ratios. Our staff includes experienced and degreed elementary and early childhood education professionals.
The curriculum is aligned with North Carolina Standard Course of Study For Kindergarten and embodies Foundations, the Early Learning Standards for North Carolina Preschoolers published by the North Carolina Department of Public Education. While there are numerous guidelines published by independent organizations, most notably the NAEYC, Foundations is dedicated to North Carolina’s Preschoolers and draws upon the experience and knowledge of parents and a diverse group of early childhood professionals.
Our prevailing philosophy is that learning activities should be functional, stimulate thinking and creativity, promote social competency, involve choice, and instill a positive attitude toward learning.
The classroom is divided into learning centers where a variety of hands-on materials and meaningful activities are available for the children. Centers are designed to meet specific academic goals and are both curriculum-oriented (math, science, writing, etc.) and theme-based (Fire Safety, Family, etc.). Students will routinely work in small groups to actively practice, apply, and extend skills and concepts introduced during circle or group time. During circle and group time, the teacher initiates discussions about various topics, special themes, or group projects. Children learn math, literacy, and social skills through singing, movement, games, show and tell, and story time. Emphasis is placed on helping the children learn how to follow directions, problem solving / predicting outcomes, and promoting listening skills and self-expression. At times, speakers will be invited to share a special skill or cultural tradition.
Classroom hours for Preschool classes are 9am to 1pm, with an option to extend hours before and after school. The school will run on Wake County Public School Calendar. School will begin on August 26, 2019 and end on June 12, 2020. Extended day options are available at the rates noted below.
