Our Story

Breaking Ground
Harbor Trinity Church began to take shape in 1955 with a small group of Christians who were seeking a church that would remain true to the Bible. Not knowing it at the time, this small group of believers would soon become the charter members of an established church in 1955, known as Harbor Trinity Baptist Church.

Growing Pains
As Costa Mesa and the surrounding communities began to grow and develop, Harbor Trinity was experiencing its own growing pains. To better reach the people in the community HTC broke ground yet again and constructed a two story educational wing. This not only allowed them to create more classrooms for Sunday school and Bible Study Fellowship (BSF), but is also created space to consider instituting a private Christian preschool in the heart of the Costa Mesa community.

The Story Continues...
In the Fall of 1982 Harbor Trinity campaigned and launched a preschool. Since then the preschool has added more students, classrooms, and staffed more and more teachers and aids. The mission that started long ago continues today - to nurture and assist students and their families in developing a relationship with Jesus Christ and to inspire them to make Him known to others.

Our Mission

An extension of the home
Harbor Trinity Preschool is a ministry of Harbor Trinity Church whose core value is to promote and cultivate a love for God and a Christ-centered self-image within the heart of each student. We believe that a proper relationship between family and school is essential to Christian education. That's why we see our ministry as an extension of the home.

We aim to...

  1. Create an opportunity for Christian growth by teaching children about God and the love Jesus has for each one of us.
  2. Provide an atmosphere that will be relaxed and loving with the flexibility to meet the individual needs of the child.
  3. Provide a safe environment inside and outside that stimulates a child's individual growth.
  4. Provide a positive approach in building a child's confidence.
  5. Encourage acceptable social behavior, kindness, and learning to work together for the well being of the class.
