Trinity Early AME Learning Center’s prekindergarten program aims to prepare young children to be “ready to learn” when they enter kindergarten. Research in brain development shows that early learning experiences directly influence a child’s ability to succeed in school, and children who participate in quality pre-kindergarten programs are more likely to show strengths in language, reasoning, problem solving, social skills, behavior and emotional health. We utilize Creative Curriculum, a comprehensive curriculum that is flexible, engaging, and fun for children. Our Pre-K program provides standards-based classroom support materials, family connection components, and easy-to-understand strategies for putting it all together and achieving school readiness.
Trinity Early AME Learning Center offers two free Pre-Kindergarten classes sponsored by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. Participation is voluntary on a first come, first serve basis as Georgia’s Pre-K Program space is limited to a set number of available slots each school year. Our Pre-K Program compliments Atlanta Public Schools and operates 6.5 hours daily and 180 days of the calendar year. Standard school hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., modeling a typical grade school day by establishing a more organized environment, engaging curriculum, set start and end times, and incorporating uniforms. This gives fours a head-start so that the transition to elementary school happens with ease, confidence and academic readiness.
Children are provided with breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack to keep their minds active while they are enjoy exploring and learning in their classroom. They are encouraged to explore centers throughout the classroom, engage in activities that interest them, and build their social skills with other children in their class. Our teachers assess each child’s development throughout the year, to help guide planning, teaching, and partnerships with parents.
In addition, to accommodate your work schedule, you can extend your child’s learning day by registering for our Pre-K Before and After Care program.
