About the Provider

Description: The Trinity Learning Center program provides for the child’s physical, spiritual, social, emotional and academic development. The program emphasizes the development of the individual child as he/she operates in a group. The teachers strive to provide a stimulating environment in which appropriate materials and situations provide rich experiences of learning as well as child guidance as the child is self-motivated to learn.

Our program is designed to maintain and encourage children’s natural curiosity and the joy of discovery, and to help them to express themselves creatively. Our daily schedule is a balance of independent and group activities, active and quiet times, including a snack time and a rest time for full day students.

Of equal importance is the role of the preschool in helping children to accept themselves as individuals within a group. Learning to work, play and share with others in a world of their own, develops independent and self-reliant children. Responsive teachers in an understanding and accepting atmosphere aid the children in achieving emotional control, sensitivity to others and a sense of fair play.

Trinity Learning Center prides itself on providing a clean, safe and welcoming environment, while still promoting the strong academic foundation that our parents are looking for. Classes are offered 12 months a year for infants through 5th graders. Private Full & Half day Kindergarten, Before & After Care and an extensive Summer Program provide a fun and challenging experience for our older students. Developmentally Stimulating Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Classes are offered for 3 through 5 year-old students. Our youngest students ages 2 months through 3 years are provided with nurturing staff and an exploratory environment to promote self-learning.

TLC has an excellent program for children ranging from infant to kindergarten age. The program is located in a beautiful new facility. It looks like a real school. It is well staffed and well supervised. The teachers meet the highest standards and most are certified teachers. The director is dynamic and always strives for better results. The facility has a nice play ground and an gymnasium where the children can engage in physical activity when the weather is not conducive for outdoor activities. Both my grandchildren attended from 18 months on and my oldest granddaughter came to kindergarten this year very well prepared and way above her classmates when it comes to her academic and behavioral skills.
