Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

" At Holy Trinity Child Caring Centers, we believe that playful experiences with materials, objects, other children, and caring adults help children develop physically, emotionally, cognitively, and socially. We want to instill a love of learning in each child as we believe all children can learn. Through the use of the Beyond Centers and Circle Time Curriculum, we are able to reach these goals.
We are excited about the Beyond Centers and Circle Time curriculum as it encourages development of the whole child - socially , emotionally , physically , and cognitively. We create a stimulating environment so that children may develop a love for learning; we offer activities that will enable each child to experience success; we try to encourage children to be creative and to appreciate that quality in others. The children are taught to interact with one another courteously and considerately.
The children at Holy Trinity Child Caring Center are treated with respect and are encouraged to treat others that way. We teach the children to discuss their problems and frustrations with their friends and encourage them to work together on finding a solution. Because we see disciplining as a teaching opportunity, we focus on teaching them what to do to get along, rather than punishing them for what they should not do.
Most of all, we strive to make the children's day an extension of their home life - a day filled with mutual respect, love, warmth, and opportunity to learn about the world around them.

A Typical Day

"Our activities are designed to balance active and quiet play as well as appropriate rest times throughout the day. Our playgrounds enable energetic outdoor playtime, while daily art activities help develop fine motor skills. Reading (our teachers read aloud an average of 15–18 books a day!), singing, storytelling, playacting, and writing are all part of our varied programs. We nurture children aged six weeks to five years with playful, loving, language-rich experiences designed to increase each child’s competence and confidence."
