“We have been blessed to have both Cruz and Aidan attend from 1 year of age and 6 weeks of age, respectively. From all the teachers, to the staff, to the owners, we have received the utmost care and consideration of their needs. In fact, with our older child, Cruz, we had an extremely poor and frightening experience at another facility, and when we contacted TLC, Joyce and Ted took him right away. We cannot express how much that meant to us that they took a personal interest in his well being.”
Infants (6 weeks-12 months of age)
The First Year
The infant program at TLC assists children in reaching important milestones in cognitive development, sensory and motor skills, as well as emotional and social development.
Cognitive Development: Infant’s abilities progress rapidly. They will begin to recognize familiar people, become aware that people and objects exist even when out of their sight, as well as developing their senses. Our team of experienced staff members use interactive games that involve sensory tools and a social environment to help in achieving these developmental milestones.
Emotional and Social Development: A nurturing environment gives children the opportunity to build trust with their caregivers, explore activities and develop a sense of self awareness and independence.
Sensory and Motor Skill Development: Sensory materials and specially selected toys will give your child the opportunity to develop in an age appropriate manner. From rolling over, sitting, to crawling, standing and finally walking, our staff is here to guide and help develop these important skills.
Toddlers (12 to 24 months)
Encouraging the huge changes ahead
Cognitive development: Children’s thinking, learning, reasoning and memory skills develop during this very important time. Age appropriate lesson plans and regular routines help children begin to develop in these areas. Circle time (Teacher lead activities), shape, color, letter and number recognition games and dramatic play are some of the activities to keep children engaged and learning.
Language development: Fostering verbal communication in children in this age group is critical. A literacy rich environment helps children with letter and word recognition. Matching games, and circle time activities help develop children’s ability to begin verbal communication.
Sensory and Motor Skill development: Age appropriate equipment in the classroom, indoor gym and outdoor area, as well as music and movement help children further develop their walking, running, climbing and jumping skills. Small object manipulation such as using utensils, crayons, pencils and paint brushes help the beginning of fine motor skill development. Art projects using beads, pasta, flour, as well as sand play outdoors activities enhance children’s sensory experience.
Emotional and Social development: Toddlers need a strong support system of parents and teachers to guide self-awareness and explore their feelings. Teachers are here to guide children and allow them to develop their increasing desire for independence, while keeping them safe and engaged in group activities.
