Learn About Us
Committed to Excellence
The learning experiences at TLC Day Care Center are designed to help our students grow both in and out of the classroom. Established in 1981, TLC Day Care Center is located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
Our program philosophy embraces the belief that children learn through developmentally appropriate practices – play. It has always been our goal to foster socialization, self-help skills, and a positive self-image while engaging your child in play. Our center embraces the uniqueness of each child. Should your child require special services we are happy to accommodate agencies who wish to work with your child during the day. We would also work with these agencies to integrate services seamlessly with our program. Through play children move from one stage of development to another. Each child has a unique learning style and it is through the classroom curriculum that each child’s learning style and interests are addressed.
The academic program at TLC Day Care Center places an emphasis on every aspect of our student’s growth and development. We take advantage of the natural curiosity students possess by having our teachers present new information in creative ways and teach through exploratory experiences.
Our curriculum includes a variety of educational experiences that meet or exceed state requirements. Suitable class sizes and exceptional, qualified teachers allow TLC Day Care Center to offer an intimate and inclusive educational environment, while also ensuring each student receives the individualized attention and support they need.
