The Holy Trinity School Mountainside Campus provides the youngest members of the community with an age-appropriate Catholic program supporting the spiritual, academic, emotional and physical needs of each student.
The educational needs of the students are met through a curriculum devised to develop the individual strengths of each student, while simultaneously developing the skills necessary for a successful school career.
The PreK curriculum emphasizes language development, reading and math readiness skills, and social development through a center-based play environment. Experiential learning continues into the kindergarten; where a balanced approach of center based learning, direct instruction and child centered activities provide an environment allowing each child to develop to his or her highest potential.
PreK-4 Plus, PreK-4, PreK-3, and 2 Year Olds
The preschool classes provide the students with an age appropriate setting that enables the children to develop at their own pace. All aspects of a child’s development are addressed through a rich and varied program. We respond to the students’ spiritual, physical, cognitive, social, and emotional needs through a multi-sensory, hands-on approach.
Full-Day Kindergarten (offered at both Mountainside & Westfield Campuses)
The Archdiocese of Newark Early Childhood Education Guidelines are followed in developing a rich curriculum. It meets the needs of each individual child, incorporating their previous experiences into our kindergarten program. The focus is on developing readiness skills and fostering a strong learning environment. The kindergartens provide the students with an introduction to formal instruction and an opportunity to learn, explore and develop their abilities.
