Weekday School

IMPORTANT UPDATE

The Weekday School follows Durham Public School's (DPS) lead on safety

closures.  Therefore, in light of COVID-19 virus concerns, along with DPS the Weekday School will be closed starting Mon Mar 16.  Continue to check the DPS website and here for updates; when their classes resume, ours should as well.

Looking for an emotionally supportive, intellectually stimulating environment for your child?

Consider Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Weekday School! Since the mid-1950s, we have sponsored the Weekday School for young children (ages 1-5) who are taking that important first step into the outside world. Toward this end,
the Weekday School:

  • Maintains small classes so that each child receives individual attention;

  • Devotes time to group endeavors and free play, helping the children develop and enjoy peer relationships;

  • Introduces basic readiness skills to help children prepare for formal school programs.

 

The school encourages close parent-teacher relationships and parental involvement in all aspects of the preschool experience so that children understand their parents’ interest in and support of life at school.

School Activities

Class activities vary in groups and according to the seasons, but a general list includes art, crafts, music, sharing time, creative movements, nursery rhymes and poetry, movies, storytelling, and free play indoors and out. Readiness includes individual small group work in basic mathematics and reading skills.

Summer Day Camps

In addition to the traditional school-year program, the preschool usually offers one week of camp in June, July, and August.  The camps operate on the same schedule as the preschool.
