Our Mission

The Mission of Trinity Episcopal Day School is to provide a nurturing, learning environment which promotes intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual and physical growth.

Our school encompasses child-centered activities based on approved developmental concepts that instill curiosity, an enthusiasm for learning and a positive foundation for the development of individual skills and talents. This foundation maximizes the potential to succeed while instilling the importance of serving God and the community.

How we came to be

Trinity Episcopal Church in Cranford, New Jersey is a parish in the Diocese of New Jersey established in 1872. We have been an integral part of the Cranford community for generations.

In 2007, a massive construction project was begun to restore the historic sanctuary with plans to complete at the end of 2010. In May 2010, it was decided to establish a preschool to meet the increasing educational needs in Cranford and the surrounding area.

Trinity Episcopal Day School (TEDS) obtained a license from State of New Jersey on January 3, 2011 for children from 2½ through 13 years of age.

Once again, a very appreciative thank you is extended to the parishioners of Trinity Church. Without many volunteers, donations and on-going enthusiasm, TEDS would not be possible.

The current Board of Directors includes Bonnie Gentesse, Dave Robinson, Joe Bardzilowski, Lynn Kiamie-Bianchini, John Zebrowski, Sarah Gregory, Heather Burnett, and Nancy Ditzel.
