Early childhood development is crucial to academic and social success later in life. Trinity Catholic Academy is committed to preparing children for long-term success through a rigorous Early Childhood Program, providing support for students ages 3-5 in myriad ways to ensure all students reach their full potential.

 

Preschool Program (age 3)

TCA has implemented a comprehensive early literacy program designed to meet the needs of three-year-olds in either half-day or full-day sessions. The program objectives include

  • Nurturing students in a safe and secure environment
  • Helping students understand they are children of God and as such develop a positive belief that they are worthy of love and respect
  • Developing oral language skills
  • Encouraging students to be lifelong learners
  • Developing creativity and imagination
  • Developing respect and sensitivity for all living things
  • Focusing on social and emotional skill development

Pre-kindergarten Program (age 4)

TCA has a newly integrated curriculum that includes literature, writing, math, science, and social science in full-day sessions. Students learn

  • Appropriate ways of interacting in a group
  • Skills to actively and appropriately participate in class discussions
  • To develop a large and rich vocabulary
  • To engage in concept-related play
  • To listen to, identify, and manipulate language sounds to develop auditory discrimination and phonetic awareness
  • To participate in physical education, recreational play, music, and art

Kindergarten Program (age 5)

TCA offers a full-day Kindergarten program that follows the Massachusetts Educational Frameworks. Its curriculum is aligned with CORE standards. Students learn in a highly structured environment with an academic program emphasizing math and language arts. Students

  • Are evaluated daily so that teachers can identify students’ individual strengths and weaknesses and tailor instruction accordingly
  • Visit the school library every week
  • Are assessed with MAP testing, an adaptive test that evaluates each child’s individual progress rather than a standardized test, which evaluates against peers
  • Are involved in science and social studies activities
  • Participate in recreational play, physical education, music, and art
