Playgroup

Trinity Lutheran College has an outstanding reputation in the Gold Coast community. The College focuses on building effective partnerships with parents to provide a comprehensive education of the highest quality, in an environment where a clear foundation of Christian values and care for each person are strongly emphasised.

The Trinity Lutheran College Playgroup is the newest addition to the services offered by the College.

Our facilitated Playgroup will

  • Offer a safe and friendly environment for children to explore and learn
  • Build trusting relationships and support parents in their parenting role
  • Support a smooth transition for children into the early years of school
  • Offer a planned group time (eg. music, stories, puppets) that may include some religious elements
  • Provide morning tea for children and parents (no hot drinks for safety reasons)
  • Allow free play and exploration of the environment
