The Weekday Education program at North Trenholm is an outreach ministry of our church. This ministry has taught preschool children in our community for over fifty years. Our program is a developmental program designed to nurture each individual child so the child may develop his/her total person - spiritually, mentally, socially, emotionally and physically. Our overall theme of "Caring While Sharing Jesus" is best achieved when teachers and parents become partners with God to encourage and enhance each child's growth.

The Weekday program is a 12-month program with operating hours of 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Our preschool program follows the Richland District II calendar with classes 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Extended Care is available on a year-round basis for those children enrolled in our program. Our Weekday program is registered with the Department of Social Services (DSS), which requires that we follow all state guidelines mandating teacher/student ratios and teacher training.

In the Fall, the following classes will be offered:
Toddlers (12-24 months)--must be one by September 1 and walking
2 Year Old (3 or 5 days per week)-- must be two by September 1
3 Year Old (5 days per week)--must be three by September 1 and potty-trained
4 Year Old (5 days per week)--must be four by September 1

What Curriculum do you use?

We use the Learning Without Tears curriculum, and also Abeka Bible Curriculum.

What are your hours of operation?

We are open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm (closing at 5:30 pm in the summer).

What are your rates?

The hours of 9:00 am to 12:00 pm are paid by a monthly tuition (See Handbook). The hours before 9:00 am and after 12:00 pm are paid by the hour at a rate of $9.00 per hour ($7.00 per hour for siblings).

Why do you require students to arrive by 9:30am?

We have found that arriving by 9:30 sets our students up for the best day possible. Arriving by 9:30 allows the students to participate in all the activities of the day, including crafts, music, chapel, and recess.

How do you communicate with parents about upcoming events or inclement weather?

We use the ProCare communication service to communicate quickly with our families. Once your child is a student at our Weekday Education program, please visit the office to get set up to receive notifications from ProCare.

What do you do when there is inclement weather?

Our policy is to close for inclement weather based on Richland School District 2’s decision to close.

Do you offer tours to families?

Yes! Parents are welcome at any time. The best times to come see a class in action are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 9:30 and 11:30. Please call the Weekday office to arrange a time to visit.

Does my child need to be potty trained to attend Weekday Preschool?

We are required by DHEC to maintain specific diaper changing areas with appropriate surfaces, disinfectants, etc. We do not have diaper changing areas in our 3 & 4 year old classes. It is our policy that all children entering the 3 year old program are able to use the restroom independently.
