At each TLC Child Development Center, you will find a variety of playgrounds to provide plenty of fun and exercise for your child. Each of our many playgrounds is equipped to fit a specific age group with features such as jungle gyms, sand boxes, and even a three-foot pool. Unstructured, creative, physical play lets children burn calories and develops all kinds of strengths, such as learning how the world works. In free play, children choose the games, make the rules, learn to negotiate and release stress. Free play often involves fantasy. If children, say, want to learn about being a fireman, they can imagine and act out what a fireman does. And if something scary happens, free play can help defuse emotions by working them out. Your child is sure to enjoy outdoor playtime at TLC.
