TLC Schools could possibly be the best
decision parents ever make concerning their child’s care and education. For
the past 25 years, their award-winning childcare and preschool facility has
continued its tradition and commitment to excellence, giving children an
exceptional start to learning and development in a loving, safe environment.
Outstanding degreed teachers lead children in 21 active classrooms, offering
an engaging curriculum with a multitude of educational opportunities. With
fun and adventurous field trips, music enrichment, dramatic play, and
activities children love, parents have discovered why TLC Schools continues
to shine as an exemplary childcare and preschool.

TLC provides a top-quality educational
foundation for children with a small, hometown feel. Like an extended family,
children are loved and nurtured under the guidance of the trustworthy staff.
Parents leave their worries behind, knowing their children are in the care of
compassionate professionals who are parents themselves. Teachers share
experienced insight with new moms, offering helpful suggestions to confirm
their capabilities and enrich their enjoyment as parents. At the same time,
they eagerly welcome and guide returning students on their exciting path to
growth and learning.

Teacher
Tenure and the TLC Difference

The remarkable longevity of TLC’s
credentialed teachers has a positive impact on children and their parents.
TLC’s director, Angela Morgan, has been in the education field for more than
25 years and has been with TLC since its beginning in 1997. Her knowledge,
industry experience, and leadership provide TLC with the competitive edge to
excel above other learning centers. Assistant Director Natalie Ross has been
with TLC for 14 years. “Our strong, well-rounded academic program elevated
our success and recognition as an award-winning childcare and preschool,” she
says. 

Programs
from Infant to Pre-K

Each TLC program provides a competitive edge
for children beginning as early as six weeks of age and up to five years old.
“We give these children such a phenomenal start with programs that build a
strong foundation for school readiness,” Angela says. Specialized programs
include Infant, Toddler, Early Preschool (two-year-olds), Preschool
(three-year-olds), and Pre-K. A stimulating curriculum with lesson plans and
goals is created for each class’ age group. 

“One of the contributing elements to our
success is the fact that each department has leadership in place to train new
teachers,” Angela explains. A long-term teacher will help guide and train a
new teacher until they’re comfortable to be on their own in the classroom.
Each long-term teacher has years of expertise in their field, most having
been employed by TLC for 14-20 years. This longevity allows them skilled
perception in identifying a child’s unique personality and tailoring the
learning experience to their needs. The low student-to-teacher ratio helps
facilitate personalized instruction. “We invest in our teachers, supporting
them both professionally and academically,” Angela adds. “If they want to
gain a higher level of education, we support them in that endeavor.”

After-School Program

The TLC After-School Program offers
school-aged children a fun, safe environment to spend their afternoons until
parents leave work to pick them up. Students receive a healthy snack and can
complete their homework in a quiet environment before engaging in various
indoor and outdoor games, enrichment activities, arts and crafts, and science
projects. Teachers help with homework when needed and help children study for
spelling tests. Insight is provided for helping them solve problems on their
own, stepping in to give extra assistance when needed. Bus service is provided
from students’ schools to the After-School Program in Plano.

Camp
TLC

Camp TLC was created for Summer Camps,
Holiday Camps (mini day camps during the holiday season), and Teacher
In-Service Days. Each camp is centered around fun activities, fantastic field
trips to exciting Metroplex locations, and enriched learning experiences to
solidify and improve children’s fundamentals.

“Word of mouth has always been our strongest
factor for referrals,” Angela says. “We’ve created a nurturing community of
students, parents, and families to thrive in. Prospective students’ parents
that visit and tour our facility always comment on the welcoming nature of
our staff and the teachers’ happy moods.” Both Angela and Natalie have heard
from families that they will continue to commute to TLC even if they have to
move because it’s such a great environment for their child.

Health
Safety and Security

The health and safety of TLC’s students,
families, and staff is always top priority. “We’re close with all of our
parents and have created a place where they feel safe and comfortable,”
Natalie says. A state-of-the-art security and video camera system is in place
and accessible to all parents. Health safety is addressed by utilizing the
hospital-grade ZONO disinfecting and sanitization system, killing 99.99% of
viruses on non-porous surfaces such as toys. This system adds an additional
layer of protection on top of the meticulous cleaning and disinfecting that
is already done on a routine basis.

“We feel our children’s level of education,
maturity, and love of learning has been strongly influenced and molded by the
