welcome to tlc prek!
The preschool program is the first school experience for most of our students. Our standards-aligned program focuses on hands-on, multi-sensory learning experiences that promote growth in the areas of gross and fine motor skills, language development, preliminary academic skills, and social interaction.
TLC preschoolers have ample opportunities to explore the larger world, whether in our gardens and playground, "Book Buddies", field trips, and, of course, as stars of school performances.
Learning through song and dance!
A strong emphasis is placed on the development of early phonics skills and word recognition with daily story time, singing, writing and an enriched circle time. The world of mathematics is explored daily with an emphasis on number sense, counting and geometry. The program is complemented with TouchMath, a fun, hands - on curriculum that builds preliminary skills and lays the framework for future academic study. Science and Social Studies are presented using an interactive and interdisciplinary thematic based approach.
Our preschool reflects a balanced approach that is developmentally appropriate for young learners. A large room offers engaging areas of exploration filled with supplies and resources, including: library, computers, and dramatic play areas. Structured learning activities in whole groups, small groups and individually are combined with time for open playtime where students can learn through peer interaction. In addition, preschoolers also enjoy physical education, Spanish, art, music, and computer classes.
