The Trinity College Community Child Center’s (TC4) primary mission is to serve the children and families of the surrounding Hartford community and the Trinity College community by providing high quality education in a safe and nurturing environment that celebrates the diversity of the families we serve. The Program serves children aged six weeks to five years.
At Trinity College Community Child Center, we believe that children and adults of all backgrounds do their best in learning environments where they feel safe and respected. You will notice that we firmly believe in building relationships as the foundation of this respect and we spend a good deal of time working at this. When solid relationships are built, taking risks and learning come more naturally.
The staff and program help in the development of the whole child from infants through preschoolers in an environment where learning occurs in the course of actively exploring purposeful activities and materials. You will often hear us say that children learn through play, as this is their mode of exploration. Our goal then is to nurture every aspect of development in typically and atypically developing children: social, emotional, physical and cognitive. We recognize children’s different learning styles and individualize learning.
