The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn. 
– Sir John Lubbock


Tri-Con Child Care Center, an inspiring early care and education facility where, since 1971, learning, laughter and creativity abound.
For over 42 years, Tri-Con has profoundly affected hundreds of children and their families.

Located in downtown Highland Park and providing subsidized early care and education for children ages three-to-seven from low-to-moderate income families, Tri-Con offers a warm, nurturing and safe early learning environment that emphasizes a learning through play philosophy ensuring that each child has the opportunity to develop at his or her own pace.

Tri-Con is that special place where each child’s uniqueness is celebrated, where parents and
extended family members become part of our Tri-Con family.

Children leave Tri-Con not only with the tools and enthusiasm necessary for learning, but with wonderful friendships and
self-confidence as they continue on their educational journeys.
