About

 

Who We Are

   • Collaborate with employers to build family-friendly workplaces

   • Create a work environment that encourages professionalism, growth,        and diversity


Philosophy

TLFC Child Care and Learning Center is dedicated to providing a warm and loving family environment for children. Our smaller size allows us to be able to give quality, individualized care to families at affordable rates, and we also offer various discounts and vouchers to help with the overall cost of care. Many basic child care necessities are provided at no additional cost by the Center, including diapers and wipes, as well as home-style meals and snacks; this helps reduce some of the stress for families where finances are an issue. For a child with special needs, we work to provide the best care possible while helping the family explore all additional resources to enhance the child’s well-being. We view the Center as a family. The importance of family bonds cannot be understated; siblings are encouraged to interact with one another, and we want everyone involved - children, parents, and staff alike - to feel like they are part of our extended family.

Children here are encouraged to be children; we do not believe they are small adults. The individual progress, growth, and development of every child are important to us. The environment at the Center promotes learning while having fun during the process. Through a mixture of hands-on experiences, group activities, and individual play, our children develop the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical skills necessary for all aspects of life and growth.

Parent comments and suggestions are encouraged and are taken into serious consideration as we continually adapt to new challenges. The children are not the only ones who are engaged in the learning experience - all of our staff and parents also learn from the children.
