Voted Best for Plano Child Care
Choosing a Plano child care facility is one of the most important decisions you’ll make, but we believe when you learn more about TLC Schools, that decision will be a lot easier. TLC offers you and your child the highest-quality educational programs and child care, combined with an exciting, safe, and secure environment that encourages growth and development.
TLC Schools has been locally owned and operated for nearly 30 years combined, nurturing and educating children in the neighborhoods in which they live. Our Green Oaks and Hedgcoxe locations opened in 2002. TLC on Hedgcoxe is the only Plano child care facility in Legacy Park.
Why TLC Schools?
“We pride ourselves in the warm, nurturing environment that we offer along with our outstanding educational programs.” – Lori Stewart, Executive Director
Your child can spend almost 50 hours a week in the child care facility that you choose, so you want to maximize their overall potential by finding the right balance between learning, nurturing and fun. At TLC Schools, your child’s success is our primary focus. We strive to provide an atmosphere in which your child can experience success on a daily basis, build a positive self-image, and acquire a lifelong love of learning. We achieve this goal through state-of-the-art facilities, an outstanding curriculum, an atmosphere that encourages exploration and development, and a caring team of teachers. It’s why we were voted best in Plano child care by Living Magazine.
Our philosophy at TLC is to offer our families and their children the highest quality educational programs and child-care, combined with an appealing, safe, secure and exciting environment for a child to grow and develop. It is our goal to provide an atmosphere where each child can experience success on a daily basis, build a positive self-image, and acquire a love of learning. We offer an excellent curriculum, in a state-of-the-art, developmentally appropriate warm and nurturing environment.
A Place that Is Secure in Every Way
We take security very seriously at TLC. Each member of our staff is involved in the security and safety of your child. Our open-door policy at TLC encourages parents to drop in at any time and we use state-of-the-art technology to control access to our facilities. Parents are required to pass a security check at the front door using a personal identification number. In addition, your child must be signed in and out by a parent or person previously designated by you.
Each classroom at TLC Schools is equipped with an in-house video camera system that allows you to observe your child in the classroom environment at any time. With a proper access code, parents can log into the Watch Me Grow system from any computer or smartphone to see how your child is doing throughout the day and watch classroom activities in real time.

“Studies have shown that children who attend high-quality, accredited preschools enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, richer vocabularies, and stronger math skills than those who do not.” – Lori Stewart, Executive Director
Our advanced educational programs are designed to support and guide your child as he or she moves at an individual pace through each developmental and learning stage. At TLC, we understand the learning behavior patterns of children, and how quickly children can advance through the stages of growth. For this reason our curriculum is divided into six-month increments, instead of the year-to-year approach typical of most day care facilities. This means that as your child advances from the two-year-old level to the two-and-a-half-year-old level, he or she will be exposed to new concepts and ideas appropriate for that point in his or her development.
We plan each day, week, month and year to optimize the development of each child who attends TLC. Each teacher is involved in the planning and development of your child’s day. Posted lesson plans and schedules, as well as take-home material help keep you informed and involved in your child’s progresses.
At TLC, we use a wide variety of traditional, active learning tools such as puzzles, blocks, art supplies, books and dramatic play areas that offer a broad range of interesting and challenging activities. We will also introduce your child to the world of computers. Each class, starting at age two, has computers and age-appropriate software available.
The Great Outdoors
At TLC, we know that in a child’s mind, nothing is better than “playing outside.” For this purpose we maintain separate, age-appropriate outside playground areas that are designed to let your child have fun and explore their world in a safe and supervised environment. Indoor activity rooms are also used to help develop gross motor skills.
