The staff members at child care centers play a vital role in shaping the future of our children. In the Trinity Child Care Program, high school students learn how to meet the academic, behavioral, and nutritional needs of children while providing a safe learning environment that fosters all areas of their development. Using their understanding of theories relating to child development and learning, Child Care students plan and facilitate age and developmentally appropriate lessons to children who attend the Trinity Preschool Program three days weekly. The Trinity Preschool serves as a laboratory school where Child Care students can observe and practice their skills in a realistic environment. The program is designed to prepare high school graduates to continue their studies in the fields of child care or education, or work in a child care facility.
