Preschool Education

Our Preschool classroom serves ages 3 and 4 years old, with a staff to child ratio of 1:10. We provide the children with the Highscope Curriculum, a weekly theme and September to May a letter per week. We have small group activities time were children are separated by developmental levels to give them the best advantage of learning. We encourage independence and problem and conflict resolution strategies. We provide developmentally appropriate activities to foster all areas of development. Children are provided daily with indoor and outdoor experiences. During our school year the children go on several field trips to the pumpkin patch, Pittsburgh Zoo, Carnegie Science Center, Natural History Museum, Apple Hill Playhouse, etc. Most children should be potty trained or successfully potty training, not required. Teachers provide lessons and monthly newsletters for families, they enjoy special days with the children throughout the year such as: show and tell, PJ day, mis-match day, etc. Through the summer we provide the children with many outdoor activities as possible with fun summer themes.

Are You Up-to-Date

I have had one child that went to TLC through the preschool program and another that has been in daycare since he was six months old. When my daughter was tested for Kindergarten, the administrator of the test told us that whoever was working with her has done a great job, as she had tested very well. My son who was in daycare and now in the Preschool program has loved his teachers. He has been made to feel as a member of the TLC family. I would strongly recommend TLC for any child.~ Lisa Wassel
