Preschool &
Parent's Morning Out

Every day should be a good day for a child

Who we are

With a rich history dating back to 1947, Trinity Preschool and Parents' Morning Out stands as one of the esteemed and long-standing preschools in the Richmond area. Trinity Preschool & PMO is a comprehensive weekday program for children between the ages of 1 and 5 years old. It is a developmental program offered in a loving and nurturing environment to help children grow mentally, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Trinity Preschool/PMO is an outreach ministry of Trinity United Methodist Church and admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
At Trinity Preschool and Parents' Morning Out, we believe children learn and grow through play. As a play-based program, we are focused on the child's natural curiosity, creativity, and desire to learn. We offer a variety of activities, such as exploring nature, music, movement, cooking, art, and age-appropriate instruction so that each child can reach his or her potential.
In a world that is moving faster each day, our children are able to slow down and grow at their own pace. We teach practical life skills and encourage independence. Trinity Preschool/PMO strives to foster an environment where each child can experience love, confidence, and success. We want our children to have a strong foundation so they will always have a life-long love for learning.In a world that is moving faster each day, our children are able to slow down and grow at their own pace.

The Commonwealth of Virginia School Entrance Health Form with updated immunizations must be completed and submitted to the school each year. If your child comes down with a contagious disease, please notify the school immediately. A child who is coughing, sneezing, complaining of stomach pain or sore throat, has had nausea, vomited, diarrhea or has had a fever measured orally (in the mouth): 100°F (37.8°C) measured rectally (in the bottom): 100.4°F (38°C): measured in an axillary position (under the arm): 99°F (37.2°C) within the past 24 hrs. should not be in school.

Staff will conduct a daily wellness check on the children upon arrival and continue to observe the children throughout the day to ensure he/she is in good health. If the child has a fever of 100.4 or above they will be sent home. If a child shows signs of illness during the school day, they will be removed from the classroom and sent to the Preschool office until the parent can retrieve them.
You must complete the MAT Medication Consent Form if your child requires medication. This form must be signed by a doctor. If your child requires more than one medication, a separate form must also be completed and signed for each medication. Your child’s medication will be securely stored at the school.
Please contact the preschool director before the start of school about your child’s health concerns and required medication. The Medication Consent Form (MAT Form) is found under Brightwheel's “Forms and Requests” tab. Please allow ample time for your doctor to fill out and sign the MAT Consent form, as your child may not come to school without it.
If your child has an Epi-Pen or Auvi-Q, the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan Form must also be completed (no doctor signature required).
The doors to the building are locked. The intercom system by the Preschool Office door or the main office door must be used to enter the building.
If there is a change in how your child will be going home, please send in a note with your child that morning or email/call the Preschool office, 288-6058,
Our staff is certified annually by a practicing physician, physician’s assistant, or licensed nurse practitioner to be free from any disability that would prevent them from caring for children under their supervision.

Please label everything that will be taken off at school. Clothing should be labeled in a way that your child can recognize. We try to go outside to the playground daily, so please be sure your child is adequately dressed for the weather. Please do not send your child to school in clothes that cannot get dirty.
Potty Training
PMO (1-2-year old) – We do not expect children in our PMO program to be potty trained. We ask that parents provide disposable diapers in their child’s backpack on a daily basis. If a parent wants to begin potty training their PMO aged child, we are happy to work with the parent but cannot accommodate potty chairs from home.
Preschool (3-5-year old) – We expect children in our preschool program to be trained. We understand that there may be accidents. It is important that parents send a change of clothes with their child daily.
Lunch Bunch (3-5-year old) –Children in our after-school Lunch Bunch program MUST be fully trained.
We are a NUT/PEANUT FREE school. The school provides snacks for all one and two-year-old children. If your child has an allergy, please check with your child’s teacher to make sure your child can eat the provided snacks. All preschool aged children (3-5 years old) bring their own snack to school. Each child should bring in a healthy snack, clearly labeled with their name, preferably in an enclosed, reusable container.
Class Parties
Each preschool class celebrates four holiday parties during the year, Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter. Parents may sign up to help with their child’s party by bringing in a NUT /PEANUT FREE snack, goodie bag, paper products for their child’s class parties. Sign-up sheets are available in the classroom on Visitation Day.
Birthday Parties: During the year, the class celebrates each child's birthday. Parents may send in a birthday treat after getting approval from the classroom teacher. Summer birthdays may be celebrated with a “pretend” birthday during the school year. Birthday party invitations will only be distributed to classmates in school if the entire class is invited.
Field Trips
The school provides in-house field trips for our preschool-aged children. We are planning for Nature Club, Cooking Class, STEAM Class, Stretch-n-Grow (Jan./Feb.), and Teddy Bear Clinic (4/5 year olds). We also look forward to our Spring Field Trip at the end of the year. Parents are encouraged to drive their children and attend the field trip with the school.
In the event that discipline is needed, positive methods of discipline are used such as redirection and active listening. If a child is having a behavior problem at school, the teacher will notify the parents.

What parents are saying

I wanted to let you know personally just how important each and every one of you has been to our son and to our family over the last three years. I have watched him grow in your classrooms and hallways from a sweet toddler, to a loving but often timid little boy, to a bright, independent, confident kid. As parents, our greatest hope for our child's preschool years was to be loved and supported by other caring adults, to be challenged mentally, socially and spiritually and for him to have the opportunity to develop a robust network of little friends. Trinity, and each of you, exceeded our expectations by miles.

Trinity PMO/Preschool has been such a wonderful fit for our family. The staff and teachers are absolutely amazing and go above and beyond to make each child feel so loved and special. Our babies always come home with big smiles and I know it has everything to do with the nurturing environment they are in at school. As they say, “it takes a village,” and I truly feel like we have found ours at Trinity.

I love that Trinity preschool has a play-based focus as I was worried with a March 2020 baby she would have a hard time developing age appropriate social skills due to limited interaction with other children the first year of her life. Through the play-based focus I have seen a huge improvement in her communication skills, creativity and fine motor skills. We love Trinity and are so grateful for the love, time and effort they dedicate to the families they serve.
