The Service of the Early Childhood Center is a ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church and an extension of Trinity Lutheran School. The Childhood Center provides childcare in a safe, healthy and Christian environment. It is our goal to promote a relaxing and enjoyable place for children to stay while providing experiences that encourage intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual and physical development.

If you are pleased with your care at Trinity, please tell your friends about us!

Once your friend completes registration, you both will receive a $25 credit!

During the school year we can accommodate students from LeClaire, Columbus, and Lincoln schools. District 7 will bus from our center to their schools. This makes it a convenient one stop pick up/drop off for parents before or after work! During the summer we invite everyone to come and use our facility.

Either family may submit the referral form to the right and you will both receive $25 off your registration fee.
