Beginning School

Beginning School is the first exposure to the classroom for young children. We create environments that nurture the whole child and are based on modern research and theory in early childhood development. Each day, students engage in active learning across disciplines–the arts, literacy, mathematics, social studies, and science.

The Beginning School' s curriculum is “center-based” along with a daily dose of direct instruction, and age appropriate books and manipulatives are available in each classroom. Children’s confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills are cultivated using a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that support the child’s development of social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language skills.

Director's Welcome

I want to welcome you to our virtual campus via this website. I want also to thank you for entrusting your children to our care and to invite those who are considering it, to give us a try enrolling your child here. We have a long, tried and tested history, which means extensive experience in the field of inclusive early childhood education.

The Beginning School of Trinity in Galveston Texas is a creative and faith nurturing community school. Our mission is to be the first exposure to the classroom for all young children. It is our philosophy that if children are placed on the right track, they are able to face the challenges of life. The Beginning School is a child-centered and play-based early learning center offering a full-day program with 3- or 4-day options for all age groups.

Teachers at the Beginning School strive to help our children gain confidence, and be creative and critical thinkers imbued with love of learning at the earliest age. We offer a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that support the development of social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language skills. Our teachers enable children to reach their full potential. The Beginning School is proud to maintain the ISAS, and SAES Accreditation -- which maintain the quality of early childhood education.

The Beginning School was Founded in 1952 by the Vestry of Trinity Episcopal Church of Galveston Texas. It is part of the third Trinity School to operate on this site. The first school opened for business on July 7, 1845, with 50 students in attendance.

All the best,

Vashti J. Thompson
