"Trinity United Methodist Church's purpose for the Trinity Early Learning
Center program is two-fold. First it provides parents of preschool children
an opportunity for a period of relaxation away from the responsibilities for
and the constant attention demanded by the young child.
Second, TELC ensures that the day the child spends away from home will
be a learning experience. TELC is often the child's first experience with the
world outside the home: the world of church, school and community. The
staff tries to make this experience a positive one, striving to help the child
know himself, like himself and learn to express himself. Through interaction
with other children, the child learns to cooperate and share with others and
to function as a member of a group. The children are guided in developing
concepts of God and the world around them. The program encourages the
development of the whole child."
