In the Dickinson Catholic Schools we offer a high-quality Christ-centered preschool program in half-day options (morning or afternoon sessions) - 2-day, 3-day, or 4-days per week. Housed at Trinity Elementary West, the preschool program of our Dickinson Catholic Schools focuses on preschool being a positive experience for the children. Our goal is to offer parents peace of mind where their child is concerned and to support the child’s growth and development. We believe all children should be given the opportunity to grow in a safe and nurturing environment. Additionally, we believe self-esteem is a critical component for optimal growth in every young child, so much focus is on socialization, self-help skills, and cooperation.
Our preschool students are given the opportunity to explore, experiment and create at their own pace in a healthy environment. In terms of day-to-day learning, preschool students have a letter of the week and work on numbers, shapes, colors and patterning. Students learn about the seasons, weather, and holidays.
The religion curriculum focuses on the love God has for us and wants us to share with others. In the classroom, time is spent on bible stories, prayers, holy days and saints.
Titan Tots Preschool students...
Titan Tots Preschool is the only preschool in Dickinson to have the Bright & Early ND Certification. Bright & Early ND is an initiative lead by the Department of Human Services to ensure that North Dakota’s children enter kindergarten with the skills needed to have a successful education. Children have 1,825 days from the day they are born until they enter kindergarten. Bright & Early ND rewards and supports programs such as Titan Tots Preschool for taking steps to maximize this time in a child’s life. When more young children are prepared for school we all benefit. Bright & Early ND gives programs such as Titan Tots Preschool a four-step guide to maximize their time spent with children. As a partner of Bright & Early ND, Titan Tots Preschool gains an all-access pass to tools and resources that will support children every step of the way. When children spend their days in a Bright & Early ND child care or preschool program, they are prepared for school. It’s a part of how we’re contributing to the great future of North Dakota.
