Trinity CDC has always been more than just a child development center; it is a community of people from many generations devoted to learning and growing together. We value our history. In the mid 1960s the school was started by a Presbyterian church. In addition to the children’s instruction, the founders felt physical, spiritual, and social-emotional development was instrumental to the holistic growth of a child. In 2001, when the Presbyterian church could no longer support the center, the leaders decided it should become a stand-alone non-profit center. In 2015, the leadership worked to develop a statement of values to replace the original religious statement. They felt it was important to continue the legacy and state what is important to Trinity CDC.
Trinity Child Development Center (TCDC), an independent and incorporated 501(c)(3) organization, originally opened in 1964 as a morning preschool program during the school year. As the needs of families in northeast Austin have changed, TCDC has evolved to caring for children full-time and year-round. Flexible schedules are offered in order to support the needs of parents with alternative work schedules. The center serves a diverse group of children in terms of ethnic background and socioeconomic level. TCDC is in the same location but the building has a new owner, the Austin Mennonite Church. TCDC has an excellent location next to the Windsor Park Branch Library and near two elementary schools. Our grassy courtyard has large trees and two separate and beautiful age-specific playgrounds.
TCDC is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. In 1995, TCDC became a designated vendor with Texas Workforce Child Care Solutions, and has held its highest rating since 1997. In 2001, TCDC became an NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accredited institution. We admit without discrimination in favor of or against any child on the basis of race, national origin, religion or challenging conditions.
