Our Staff
Our staff is committed to training young children in a Christ-centered environment. The administration of the Center is provided by the Director under the policies of the Board of Education of Trinity Lutheran Church.
The staff consists of teachers and child care assistants. Each teacher holds a degree or certificate necessary to meet the standards of the position. The staff participates in continuing education to keep current with materials and activities available for young children.

Classical Curriculum
The time-tested way of learning cultivates wisdom and Christian virtue by nourishing the soul on truth, goodness and beauty. At Trinity, classical education emphasizes the tools of learning. Through the reading of good literature, teaching of phonics, careful instruction in the writing form of letters and numbers, listening to quality music, and the beginning instruction in the other fields of learning, the children are given a strong foundation for future education. All of Western civilization is founded upon this approach.

Guidance/Discipline
Children at Trinity Learning Center will be treated as precious children of God. They will be shown love and respect. Children will be expected to follow certain rules. There will be reasonable consequences when children are in the wrong. The children will be shown their sin and encouraged to say, “I’m sorry.” The staff will also share forgiveness and the love of Jesus with the children and encourage the children to use the words, “I forgive you,” when they have been wronged.
