The staff of Trinity Episcopal Preschool is proud to offer a program that encourages children to be children. We welcome a broadly diverse community of children from two and one-half through five years old.

The goal of our program is to supplement the meaningful family life of a child with regular association of others of the same age and maturity under the thoughtful guidance of teachers specifically trained to promote their development.

Through activities of play, indoor and out, music, reading and crafts, the children are encouraged to cooperate with others as well as increase their own sense of independence and strength.

 

Our History

 

Trinity Preschool began as a nursery school in 1950 with the affectionate name of TENS by which it is still called today.   Virginia Jennings was the founder and first director. In 1951 Floris Crosthwaite became the director, and it was she who purchased all the nursery school’s equipment.  By 1955 the school was under the care of Ms. Crosthwaite’s daughter, Floris Ethel, who maintained the school’s tradition until her mother’s return in 1957.  Ms. Crosthwaite guided the program for fifteen more years.

In 1972, Beverly Gaston was chosen by the Board of Directors to be the new director.  Ms. Gaston has the distinction of being the longest serving director of an Episcopal school in the Los Angeles Diocese.  The school today has preschool status and is licensed under the laws of the state of California with the Episcopal Schools Commission of Southern California serving as oversight.
