Who We Are

About Us:

Trinity Lutheran Daycare in Hilbert is affiliated with our Lutheran Church Missouri Synod congregation, which enrolls infants to school-aged children, who are 6 weeks to 12 years old. Our campus includes a Church, Daycare, and Lutheran School for grades Pre-K through 8.

Trinity Lutheran Daycare started in the former teacherage (principal's home) as a drop-in service for parents who needed short-term or part-time care for their children. The home setting allowed children to feel safe and secure while learning about God's love. 

In 2010, the old teacherage was torn down and replaced with a new building that has an open room concept. While many families have their children enrolled in the daycare full-time, there are some families that need part-time care. Trinity Lutheran Daycare strives to keep the flexibility of the original daycare in order to assist families that do not need full-time care. 

In addition to the multi-age approach to childcare, there are separate rooms for infants to nap in and for older children to use during before and after school care. 

We use a curriculum-based program that allows children to explore various topics throughout each season. Call (920) 853-7142 to schedule your tour.

What to Expect

The daycare door will be locked at all times for safety reasons.

Our Philosophy

Trinity Lutheran Daycare provides a safe, healthy, nurturing Christian environment for all children to explore and learn about the world around them.  We encourage children to learn through play, with a balance of both teacher-directed and child-initiated activities.  Art projects, bible stories, stories, songs, group time, outside time, gym time, and pretend play are just some of the exciting opportunities your child will have available to them throughout the day.

Days are filled with bible stories, outside play, art time, group time, and holiday activities.

Trinity Lutheran Daycare accepts children 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Preference will be given based on available space to existing daycare families, Trinity congregation members, families of Trinity Lutheran School, and Trinity staff members.
