TLC child Care Center is a community outreach program sponsored by Trinity Lutheran Church. We offer a unique, non-profit Child Care Center for children of the Community, age 0-12. It is a developmentally appropriate program where we believe children learn best through play. We work with families regardless of their financial status to ensure that high quality child care and education is a reality for all in need. Children are given the opportunity engage in structured activities that follow children’s interests and are given ample time to participate in free exploration of our learning centers. Our teachers support learning by encouraging children to think for themselves, work on peaceful problem solving and express their feelings and ideas in a safe, nurturing environment. Our teaching staff establishes classrooms that are structured and organized to meet the individual needs of each child. It is our passion to offer a fun, stimulating and spiritual learning environment built on kindness, compassion and understanding. We recognize and foster active partnerships between school, home and our community.
