PHILOSOPHY

Trinity Child Development Center purposefully focuses on the developmental levels and needs of young children. We recognize the essential connection between social, emotional, physical, cognitive, language, creative and spiritual development as parts of each individual. We honor and celebrate diversity and uniqueness of each individual, and plan for differences in abilities, interests, learning styles and experience.


We believe:
  • the early years are critical learning years which offer the opportunity to maximize potential brain development in young children

  • responsive, nurturing relationships are key to quality early education and care

  • safe, predictable environments help children to develop trust

  • positive guidance methods build competence and self confidence

  • children learn through active play

  • parents and families are important teachers of children

  • learning must be tied to positive emotions

  • all children need advocates


Therefore we offer:
  • experienced staff with extensive training in early care and education

  • consistent, comforting and fun routines that meet the needs of each age group

  • positive guidance methods including clear limits, redirection, modeling, opportunities to make choices, and positive expectations of each child

  • planned activities and experiences to develop self help skills and independence

  • extensive opportunities to actively use all five senses

  • a myriad of experiences to explore and discover our world and how it works

  • an environment that fosters the ability to work cooperatively within a climate of unity and interdependence

  • support of parents and staff for the important work that they are doing

  • opportunities for everyone to develop, practice, and model happy, healthy behaviors

  • small classes and low child to teacher ratios

  • community building activities which lead to an extended family atmosphere where children feel at home
