Trinity Children’s Centre started from the simple conviction that God loves children — especially children in vulnerable situations. The founders of TCC were looking for a practical way of walking alongside children on the Cape Flats as they strove to overcome adversity.
Having a vision, but few resources and little experience, the founders decided to start as small as possible: just one little preschool class in the unused garage of a local church. After a successful first year, full of learning for both the children and the team, they added a second class. Generous donors helped to buy and renovate two neighbouring houses to provide offices and a few more classrooms.
The children kept learning and growing and were soon ready for primary school. Out of a desire to keep working with the same children, TCC opened the first Grade 1 class in 2015, while continuing to take new children into the preschool.
