The TLC program is made up of two separate and unique programs working together to provide for the needs of children between the ages of 1 to 5 years old. One of the unique aspects of our programs for the Seattle area is we get the children outdoors everyday rain or shine. We spend more than two hours a day outside. We feel it helps children stay healthier during the fall and winter months. They also get to strengthen their large motor muscles while getting to breath fresh air.
We also feel we are unique because we are a program that is in between a center and an in-home child care. We are able to provide a family environment combined with a learning setting. We have low child to teacher ratios (6 children to 1 adult). Children learn to trust that we will be there for them when they need us.
When the children move from the preschool program to the pre-kindergarten program we try to make the move a good experience for all the children. One way is by moving the children in groups of friends. They also have the opportunity to be involved with the other program’s teachers so when they move up they are already acquainted and comfortable with the teachers.
We really enjoy our jobs and love working with children. We find it a very rewarding and fulfilling career.
We offer two classroom programs. Learn more about each by visiting their page.
When I’m building in the block room,
When I’m getting all dressed up,
When you see me up to my elbows in paint,
When you see me engrossed in a puzzle or some
When you see me cooking or tasting foods,
When you see me learning to skip, hop, run, and move
When you ask me what I’ve done at school today,
