OUR CURRICULUM


Inspiring a love for education and life long learning.

From infants to the school age child, an organized approach to planning the day, week, month and year is essential in the development of your child. The ABEKA© Early Education Curriculum is age appropriate and supports and guides your child as they move at their own pace through each developmental and learning stage. Each teacher is involved in the planning and development of your child’s day. Posted lesson plans and schedules, as well as take home materials, help to keep you informed and involved in your child’s development. A wide variety of active learning tools such as computers, puzzles, blocks, art supplies, books and dramatic play areas offer a broad range of interesting and challenging activities. Separate, age-appropriate outside playground areas are designed to allow exploration of the world outside and to just let your child have fun in a safe and supervised outdoor area. Indoor activity rooms are utilized to develop gross motor skills as well as extra activities such as dance, gymnastics, karate and soccer. Visits from special guests will delight the children as they learn about their community.

TLC Schools believes that learning a second language is essential to a child’s language development. Many studies have demonstrated the benefits of second language learning not only on student’s linguistic abilities but on their cognitive and creative abilities as well.

Computers


Our computer rooms are equipped with new technology and learning games that will teach your child to be familiar with a computer. Our computer rooms are monitored and our facilities are secure. Allowing young children to use computers can be beneficial in a number of ways because computer use: prepares children for future computer use in school; introduces educational skills; improves problem-solving skills; improves long-term memory and manual dexterity; teaches children spatial and logical skills; stimulates language comprehension; and even boosts self-esteem and confidence. Internet access can help kids become more creative and communicative, according to the United States Department of Commerce; computer use can also improve academic growth and expose children to worlds they might not encounter otherwise.

This approach provides continuity and reinforcement in the learning process. Most importantly, A Beka© allows our teachers to concentrate on what is most important – your child.
