About Us

Trinity Learning CenterThe Trinity Learning Center program provides for the child’s physical, spiritual, social, emotional and academic development. The program emphasizes the development of the individual child as he/she operates in a group. The teachers strive to provide a stimulating environment in which appropriate materials and situations provide rich experiences of learning as well as child guidance as the child is self-motivated to learn.

Our program is designed to maintain and encourage children’s natural curiosity and the joy of discovery, and to help them to express themselves creatively. Our daily schedule is a balance of independent and group activities, active and quiet times, including a snack time and a rest time for full day students.

Of equal importance is the role of the preschool in helping children to accept themselves as individuals within a group. Learning to work, play and share with others in a world of their own, develops independent and self-reliant children. Responsive teachers in an understanding and accepting atmosphere aid the children in achieving emotional control, sensitivity to others and a sense of fair play.

Trinity Learning Center prides itself on providing a clean, safe and welcoming environment, while still promoting the strong academic foundation that our parents are looking for. Classes are offered 12 months a year for infants through 5th graders. Private Full & Half day Kindergarten, Before & After Care and an extensive Summer Program provide a fun and challenging experience for our older students. Developmentally Stimulating Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Classes are offered for 3 through 5 year-old students. Our youngest students ages 2 months through 3 years are provided with nurturing staff and an exploratory environment to promote self-learning.

Mission

To provide the highest quality, developmentally appropriate care and education for the children of our parish and its greater community. In our Greek Orthodox family-centric environment, children of all backgrounds will be loved, nurtured and encouraged to grow intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, ethically and physically to strengthen a solid foundation upon which a great life and character may be built. We will apply ourselves to this task with a commitment to the pursuit of excellence and in the recognition that we are making the most important investment in the future of our world that is possible .

History

Trinity Learning Center opened its doors to students in April of 2007, but the parishioners of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church began planning an exceptional Early Educational Center years before the school was even built.  During this time volunteers, supporters and staff utilized a small church office to finalize school plans.  In this small office staff met with state and local agencies, developed a baseline curriculum and signed up our first students.
Trinity Learning Center is supervised by the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.  The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church was established in Egg Harbor Township in 1981and is a parish of the Metropolis of New Jersey in the Greek Orthodox Archdioceses of America headquartered in New York, NY.

When we teach our children to be good, to be gentle, to be forgiving,
to be generous, to love their fellow men…we install virtue in their souls,
and reveal the image of God within them.  St. John Chrysostom

In 2004 the first Trinity Learning Center school board, made up of educational professionals, within the parish, supported by outside consultants, planned for a center which would promote a strong academic curriculum, supported by qualified teachers and nurturing support staff.  The goal of that first school board was to have an academically exceptional center while promoting core Christian values, remains in place today.  Since opening the doors in 2007 the school has grown beyond capacity.   The school boasts 13 classrooms, a full indoor gymnasium, equipped playground and community hall which offer ample space for students to play and explore.
