Trinity Learning Center

Preschool in Clayton, NJ 08312

Trinity Learning Center is a Christian Pre-School, and Before and After School Program, which is a part of the of the outreach ministry of Trinity United Methodist Church.

Our learning center began as a one room nursery school in 1988. Each year the center has grown in size and effectiveness. The center has added new classes, recruited quality staff, and has intentionally kept the student/staff ratio low. At Trinity Learning Center we strive to “make a difference for Christ” by emphasizing Christian education, Christian character, and a Christian community.

Today the center serves parents and children by being open weekdays from 6:30am to 6pm. The Pre-School Program serves children ages 2 1/2 -5. The Before and After School Program provides a safe, fun and caring environment for students in K-6th grades.

Additionally, the center operates an exciting Summer Camp Program from mid-June through the end of August. Special trips, swimming, crafts, and games all help to make Summer Camp a place where children want to be!

At Trinity Learning Center we believe that “If you train up a child in the way he should go… when he is old he will not turn from it.” We consider academic growth and spiritual growth to be integral parts of the maturation process. We therefore strive to integrate the highest levels of academic curricula with intentional biblical principles, and with the modeling of Christian character and values.

We believe learning should be a positive experience. In addition to making learning interesting, challenging and fun, we also believe it is important to guide children toward a positive view of God, others and themselves. We believe that children thrive in a context where they are loved and respected as persons, yet at the same time are held to a positive stand of respect and obedience.

Our goals at Trinity Learning Center are in line with the four facets of child development: spiritual, cognitive, physical, and social. Luke 2:52 is a model for us.
“And Jesus grew in wisdom (Cognitive) and stature (Physical) and in favor with God (Spiritual) and men (Social.)”

Spiritual: to lead by example and make an internal and external and eternal impact on children, the families and each other as a staff. Cognitive: to stimulate the desire to learn in order to acquire the wisdom necessary to live as godly, productive citizens who will serve God, their families, their community, and their nation. Physical: to develop gross and fine motor skills, the use of the hands, and the use of the body to serve God and help others. Social: to teach and model positive social interaction that leads to a healthy self-identity by fostering the love of God and the putting of others first along with self-control and respect for authority within an environment of acceptance and trust.
