"We are all God's children made worthy in His eyes because of His love and sacrifice. It is my hope that all children who attend TLS will come to know Christ and develop a relationship with Him."  -Jeanne Arturi, Preschool Director
I remember the story a 4 year old preschooler once told about how the furnace man was at his house to clean their furnace, but "it's not very shiny". It made me think of how we may not look or act very well, but how Jesus died for us so that we are clean and shiny on the inside from all of our sins. Only then can we shine with His love.
 
Ms. Arturi has a Bachelor of Science degree from Western Illinois University and a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education from National Louis University.  She has been in the field of education for 30 years and has been at Trinity since 1989.  Ms. Arturi believes that the preschool experience should be fun learning, as it sets the tone for lifelong learning.  Most importantly she believes that we are all children of God, whom Jesus died for & for whom the Holy Spirit develops faith.

"Be still and know that I am God..."  Psalm 46:10.  Ms. Arturi likes this bible verse because it helps her to remember to step back and reflect on the fact that God is in every situation and that His will is done.
