Hello! I am Trina Hancock and am the Director here at Faith Lutheran. I grew up in Sunnyland and graduated from Washington High School. I am married to Randy and we have 3 daughters, 2 Labrador Retrievers and a kitten.

Since I was a young girl, I’ve had a desire to teach and nurture children. I have my Associates Degree concentrating in Early Childhood education. I have served in the early childhood profession for over 18 years, with 11 of those as a director, working in both childcare and public schools. I also served on my local school board for 8 years.

I am genuinely excited to be part the team here at Faith Lutheran! I believe in the importance of family and look forward to partnering with each of you to provide a firm foundation on which your child can grow, learn and flourish. I have an open door policy; please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Director of Staff & Curriculum

Hello, my name is Robert Kensinger. I have the wonderful opportunity of being the Director of Staff and Curriculum at Faith Lutheran. I started my college journey at Illinois Central College, where I received my Associates Degree. I then attended Eureka College, where my major was in elementary education with a specialization in social sciences. I received my Bachelor degree in December of 2009.

I have worked with many children over the course of my education/career and have enjoyed it very much. While attending Eureka High School I was a teacher’s assistant for four years at the Head Start program. While in high school and after I graduated, I worked at the Apostolic Christian Nursing Home and later at Noah’s Ark Children’s Center, a local pre-school/daycare, where I was employed as the Assistant Director. At Noah’s Ark I was also the infant, toddler, 2’s, 3’s, school age, preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten teacher. I then went to work at Peoria Hebrew Day School where I was the Principal. I also taught Kindergarten and 1st grade at the Day School. Now I am at Faith Lutheran Childcare Center!

I look forward to working with your child during their time at Faith Lutheran Child Care Center. If you ever have any questions, or comments, please feel free to contact me.
