In August 1983 Mrs. Gail opened Trinity Chapel Child Care Center. The desire to be able to provide affordable high quality child care to this community was birthed within her when she was trying to find child care for her own children, she visited many centers that she just couldn’t consider leaving her own children at. The center had small beginnings but a big heart and quickly grew to become the center that you will find today.
May 2009 was an exciting time for us as we opened up our brand new child care center. We were so excited to have nine brand new classrooms and brand new commercial kitchen. All of our classrooms are set up with their own bathrooms so that they are self-contained. Each child can have all of their needs met without having to leave the comfort of their own classroom. We love our new home and are so thankful that we are able to meet the needs of customers in such pleasant surroundings.
We are excited that you are interested in our center! Trinity Child Care has been serving the Copperas Cove/Ft. Hood area for over 30 years under the direction of Mrs. Gail Sanders. Our motto over the years has been "Caring and Sharing Jesus with Children". As a Christian center, we promote a family atmosphere where your child will be safe, loved, and participate in fun enriching activities that will leave them excited to return each day. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Trinity’s motto has always been Caring and Sharing Jesus with Children. We are a Christian organization which operates on Biblical principles. We place high standards on ourselves, our staff, our students and their parents. We believe that the Bible provides moral and spiritual values and guidelines which help to develop a Christ-Like Christian character. We strive to display these morals and values in our speech, behavior, and thoughts.
We hold in high esteem the value of strong, early childhood education. All of our toddler classes through Kindergarten utilized the sound, biblical, and high academic standards of ABEKA Curriculum.
We accept children 6 weeks to 12 years and begin teaching curriculum at 18 months. We offer both full-time and part-time care for children over 18 months, full time only for infants 0-18 months. We offer private Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten and you do not need to make the public school age cut-off to be eligible for our classes. We also offer before and after school care for Halstead Elementary which is located directly across the road from our center, we also offer van service and after school care for other elementary schools in the Copperas Cove School district*.
Our classes are separated by age, however, they are not exclusive to a certain age. At times there are children whose chronological age does not adequately represent their developmental needs and we do our best to accommodate accordingly. Children can advance to an older class if they are developmentally ready and in the same respect if they need to remain in a younger class because they are not yet ready to advance they can remain behind. We aim to meet the needs of all of the children in our care.
*Van seating is limited. Please check with the office for school availability. Trinity currently serves only Williams-Ledger and House Creek with van service.
We use the Abeka curriculum for all of our classes aged 18 months and up. It is a Christian Curriculum with a strong Biblical Foundation. For further information on the Abeka curriculum you can visit their website www.abeka.com. The curriculum is not based on doctrines but on basic Bible truths and Principles. There is an annual Curriculum fee which is due at the time of registration and then again for each new school year.
Sometimes a holiday falls on a weekend. If this is the case, we will be closed Friday for a Saturday Holiday and Monday for a Sunday Holiday.
We do provide all day care for school aged kids when school is out except on the days mentioned above.
In the event of inclement weather, the center may decide to shutdown for the safety of our staff and customers. When this happens, we will do our best to notify local media. We will always have announcements like that posted to our facebook page and here on this website if the need arises. Please consult your parent handbook for more information or call the office at 254-547-7470.
