Children are precious at Here I Grow. Taking to heart Jesus’ own love for children, we seek to provide a comprehensive and caring ministry to children and their parents. Children at our center experience acceptance, enjoy themselves while engaging in the learning process, and are taught to express their faith through a broad range of programming. Our center is a nurturing place where caring adults show children God’s love in a warm, clean, and safe environment.
Here I Grow, a ministry of Trinity, is dedicated to the needs of the entire family. Every family who enters our center is precious and valued in the sight of God. It is our desire that every parent feel comfortable with the loving care and attention their child receives while at our center. Our infants and preschoolers deserve the best. They are important to Jesus; therefore, they are important to us.
The Here I Grow Child Development Center is a ministry of Trinity. Our center is a planned Christian weekday program for newborn children through kindergarten. We believe that a child develops mentally, physically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally; therefore, we strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual development of each children which allows them to grow and develop just as Jesus did. We are committed to providing biblically-based and age-appropriate experiences that allow each child to progress at his or her own level of ability while enjoying feelings of success. This is primarily done through hands-on activities in learning centers and positive Christ-like role modeling by the Here I Grow staff.
Each staff member of the Here I Grow Child Development Center staff feels that we have a wonderful opportunity, as well as, an important obligation to seek to teach every child about God, and to provide developmentally appropriate activities for all children within a Christian setting. Here I Grow believes in and encourages mothers to stay at home with their children. We believe the best environment for children is at home with their mother.
However, when that is not possible, we believe the second best place is our Christian child development center, which is dedicated to assisting parents in nurturing their children in Christian love and teaching.
Here I Grow has a well-planned program which:

Family Lifestyles & Biblical Values Statement
Here I Grow is a ministry of Trinity; therefore, it is our belief that God intended for the family unit to consist of a father and a mother. We, also, believe and encourage mothers to stay at home with their children. We believe the best environment for children is at home with their mothers.
However, when that is not possible, we believe the second best place is our center, which is dedicated to assisting parents in nurturing their children in Christian love and teaching. We understand that life does not always turn out as planned and we must adjust accordingly. We will enroll children from any family structure and teach children about God’s love.
“So that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.” —Titus 2:4-5
