   Teaching Little Children Through Play

Our Philosophy

TLC Day Care provides a positive learning environment for your child that enhances his or her level of development. Through play experiences and the guidance of specially trained staff, your child will be exposed to situations that will stimulate:

  • Curiosity, initiative and independence

  • Self- esteem and decision-making capabilities

  • Interaction with and respect for others

  • Physical activity that develops gross-motor skills

  • Communication skills

  • Fine-motor development


We believe that children learn through play. Therefore, we encourage the children to explore, create, and share the creations they have made with their imaginations. Discovery centers are play areas that have various materials such as blocks, dramatic play, trains, cars, music and art. The children have the freedom to choose centers throughout the day.
