TRI-CDC Pre-School Program

Creating a love of learning that paves the way for success throughout the child’s school years and later life.

Our pre-school program offers opportunities and experiences that help build your child’s self-esteem, independence and achieve school readiness in all areas of academic and social learning.Our three classrooms, Butterfly, Dragonfly, and Lady Bug all offer a multi-age experience for children age 30 months to 5 years.

The whole child is nurtured by integrating activities into their daily routines that focus on the areas of language, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. These learning experiences are intended to meet your child’s individual developmental stage. We achieve this by maintaining a positive atmosphere where children are free to explore and interact with other children, adults, and their environment.

Our comprehensive pre-school programing is designed to serve all children seeking preschool and/or child care services including those with learning, behavioral or health challenges.

School-Age Enrichment Program

When school is out, TRI-CDC School-Age Enrichment program is the place to be.

TRI-Child Development Center recognizes the developing physical, intellectual, and social competence of the increasingly independent school-age child. Children ages 5 to 10 years are striving to achieve socially and academically while expanding their knowledge of the world.  Our program offers them enriched learning opportunities, new challenges, friendships, and increasing responsibilities in a fun environment.

Our curriculum integrates creative play and project-based programing along with homework assistance and a healthy snack. With our child development professionals at your child’s side, you can be assured that your child is getting the care and support they need, the creative learning experiences they enjoy and the intellectually challenging opportunities they deserve. 



TRI-CDC Summer Camp

New experiences - guest presenter showing lizard to children

Join us each summer for fun, friendships, and exploration.

Day camp programs at TRI-CDC include indoor and outdoor activities, as well as opportunities for fun, friendship, and exploration. Our programs group children by age and encourage their growing ability to make choices, work with others, and assume responsibilities.

Our camp teachers work collaboratively to develop a fun curriculum that takes advantage of all that the summer offers. They use playgrounds, the surrounding community, and special visitors as an extension of the camp, helping children to discover science, explore nature, and engage in the creative arts, while learning about the vast opportunities in the world around them.
