Trinity Lutheran Church Preschool is open to all children ages 2 to 5 who are ready for preschool as mutually agreed upon by parents and preschool administration. Enrollment will be granted without discrimination regarding gender, race, color, creed or political belief.

While Trinity Lutheran Church Preschool welcomes people of all faiths, it is important for parents to appreciate our position surrounding parent-institution relationships. Research shows there are significant differences in attitudes of parents who view child rearing as a vocational calling ("way of life") and those who see child rearing as advocacy, intent on arranging the environment to benefit their children. Parents who see child rearing as a calling seek to engage preschools around topics such as faith and religion, moral development, and community service. Other parents put other emphases on other aspects of socialization— organizing play dates for children, participating in parent organizations, and advocating for and leading parent events and activities. In line with the Lutheran expression of faith, Trinity Lutheran Church Preschool emphasizes parenting as vocational calling, desiring and expecting our parents to be active with their children at the preschool and in the classroom.
