TLC Schools offers the best in Private Kindergarten.

TLC’s academics, assessments and encouragement of parent involvement insure that our Private Kindergarten program will provide your child with a strong foundation and all the necessary skills to succeed both in Kindergarten as well as in their future academic career. In the TLC Private Kindergarten program, your child will be encouraged to explore, develop and learn in a friendly, nurturing environment.

Students participate in arts and crafts, group activities and creative playtime in addition to basic academic studies such as reading, writing, and technology. Students are encouraged to succeed and they are praised on a daily basis for excellent achievement. Since TLC offers a Private Kindergarten, we are able to intellectually challenge our students above traditional standards with our advanced curriculum.

The commitment that the students, parents, and TLC share is evident in the students’ work, character, and future success.

Our students engage in a challenging and fulfilling day that leaves them with the desire of coming back the next day. They explore, learn and review various phonics-based curriculums that include: vowels, consonants, blends, one- and two- vowel words, words with special sounds, and sentence comprehension. Students become more comfortable with reading and develop a strong desire for books that will follow them throughout their lives. Writing becomes an essential part of their daily routine. Students are introduced to tests, written and oral, that measure their aptitude for learning phonics, math, science, and social studies.
