Trinity Education Daycare was officially established by Dr. George M. Howard September of 1996 with three children. In April of 1997, Mrs. Julia Howard became the Administrator of T.E.D.
Julia Howard is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa with a BA degree in Early Childhood Development and Elementary Education. She received her Masters of Education from Viterbo University La-Crosse, Wisconsin. She adopted the motto “Learning Can Be Fun”. She also serves as a teacher in the Gary Public School System.
The TED Ministry will put emphasis on individualization of instruction and developing self-esteem. Students will become active, engaged learns who gain the skill, attitudes, and values necessary for lifelong learning skills.
The mission of TED is to glorify God by providing students with educational experiences and opportunities that address the diverse academic, social, emotional and physical needs of children.
T.E.D. Ministry expanded its wings to include an all-day Kindergarten Program beginning August 1998. The Kindergarten curriculum consisted of “The A Beka Curriculum”. From the years of 1999 until 2003 T.E.D. added an additional grade until 2003 when they provided education to those in the sixth grade. It is the goal of T.E.D. to be accredited with the State of Indiana as a freeway school for Elementary and Junior High School.
T.E.D. Ministry is further expanding into an accredited academy under the “none public freeway” contract. With the accomplishment of receiving a freeway accreditation we feel the name should reflect the growth as an academy. [We will add “and academy” to our name as a DBA.] Therefore, the DBA name for T.E.D. Ministry is Trinity Educational Daycare and Academy.
